Dawn's love of color, texture, and beauty in
everyday life, have led to artistic expression through many creative endeavors including stained glass and pottery, and finally to a medium where she is able to incorporate many of those techniques into her felt-making. You may see some of the wonderful textural and sculptural images found in pottery, or the beautiful color ways noted in stained glass. Most recently, Dawn's 'Blue Coral' felt hat was was chosen to appear in the 2019 'Felt Fiber Transformed' issue of Fiber Art Now magazine. 

Dawn's hats were featured in Issue 127 of the International Feltmakers Association journal, 'Felt Matters'.

 Dawn's felt tutorials have been included in several of the Australian 'FELT'
 Magazine issues, including the cover and a tutorial for the pine cone hat (Issue 16), as well as a 'Meet the Maker' section with photos of several of her hats.  

Several images of Dawn's work, as well as a color essay, shared the pages of the new tri-lingual book published by Textile-link,  'Worldwide Colours of Felt'
