Welcome to the RHS Chelsea flower show page.  After many years contemplating, I am thrilled to be part of this iconic British event. 
It has been an 11 month rollercoaster journey to proud launch my new collection ('the botanical girls) that will be showcased in the 'Essence of Life' garden.

Through sculpture, I am able to express myself in a way that feels authentic and true to who I am. It's given me a sense of purpose that I consider a true gift.

I am grateful to have had the opportunity to collaborate with such talented team artisans to create the 'Essence of Life' garden to showcase my sculptures.

Launching the botanical collection of bronze sculptures

Dawn's desire to create characters that embody these qualities has led her to explore a range of themes in her artwork.

From the wonder and joy of childhood to the beauty of the natural world, each sculpture tells a unique and captivating story.


Dawn's art is more than just a reflection of her own life experiences;

it's a celebration of the human spirit and all that makes us truly alive.
