Dawn’s work is inspired by her love of nature, her respect for tales of old, and her delight in the wonder of the world. Alongside writing stories of her own creation, Dawn specialises in re-telling traditional tales. Her books have won many awards. One of the ways she shares stories is by making ‘story-scrolls’. This traditional art form uses hand-made paper-cuts to create a gentle stream of scrolling silhouettes, accompanied by live storytelling lit by candle-light.
