Dawn Benson studied graphic design at Twickenham College of Technology. After working in graphic design business for 16 years, Dawn returned to sculpture and watercolours. Dawn was born in Canada and moved to England as a small child. Dawn exhibits in exhibitions and galleries around the UK as well as internationally and has work in collections around the world.

Dawn’s sculpture is figurative and she produces primarily bronzes. Initially working in clay, plaster or wax, the pieces have a truly sensitive quality. A lot of Dawn’s work is based on families and relationships. A mother herself, much of her inspiration is drawn from her own experiences, relationships and feelings.

‘There is a myriad of feelings and emotions depicting relationships that I wish to explore,’ Dawn explains ‘both dependent and interdependent.’

Commissions of Dawn Benson’s paintings and sculptures are included in collections in America, New Zealand, Holland, Spain and Germany. Dawn has also completed a prestigious commercial project for eight sculptures for the Jordanian stand for Expo 2000 in Hanover.


Our Autumn Show continues at our Hexham Gallery. Artists featured are Lisa Delarny, Billy Childish, Chris Jones and Alexander Shibniov.
