Dawn Wesselby is a mixed media artist with a leaning towards ceramics as she is fascinated by its versatile and earthy nature. Her work ranges from the forgotten nature of the divine feminine to issues facing women due to their sex.
More recently her work has taken on a political nature to highlight the issues faced by women across the globe, whether it be femicide, or exploitation of women.
Due to Covid she has had to review her working methods and moved away from ceramics and towards embroidery, a media traditionally seen as 'women's work' as she highlights the sex trafficking of women and girls.
