Dawn Southworth is recognized for her mixed media works and installations. She is a graduate of Massachusetts College of Art and Design, where she focused on textiles and sculpture. Her passion for fabric and fibers has evolved into a sophisticated and innovative approach to construction. Working with a multitude of materials affords her boundless room to experiment with techniques and processes. Her work begins with the act of collecting, both in the tangible sense and also in memory. Dawn’s studio houses well loved fabrics, burnt ironing board covers, found and rusted metals, vintage hand-written journals, photographs and reclaimed canvases. She strives to create a discourse between the tales embedded in these artifacts and her own stories and memories.
