Dawn Benson


Dawn produces stylised, figurative sculptures in bronze and bronze resin. Initially working in clay, plaster or wax the pieces have a truly sensitive quality. Most of the work is based on families and relationships. A mother herself, much of her inspiration is drawn from her own experiences, relationships and feelings. For example, in 'leaving the beach', one feels the struggle of the mother as she tries to move her children away from something they enjoy and who are doing as children do, acting up. In the intimacy groups the figures are sensitive and loving and the family bonds powerful and deep. Over the last few years, she has been exploring the deep bond that can develop between children and horses. These are very sought after, and there is now quite a stable of horses available. Her work captures an element of tension, humour and sensitivity, making one realise there is often more than meets the eye.

There is a myriad of feelings and emotions depicting relationships that I wish to explore, both dependant and inter-dependant and I feel I have a lifetime full of creative ideas to work from.

I also produce works to commission, so if you have something you would like to discuss as a possibility, please get in touch with me.

Initially I work on a small scale but the work can be scaled up to produce outdoor sculptures. I do work to commission and am happy to discuss any project with a private or corporate clients.
