Dr Dawn BonesandArt

I have been looking at and enjoying art all my life, visiting many galleries and making a few purchases. I have also been interested in photography and always tried to take artful photos with good composition.

While in the U.K. I dabbled with art lessons. Later in Sydney I took up lapidary, faceting and silver smithing enabling me to design and make  many pieces.  Moving to Queensland, I purchased a deer farm and was fascinated by the beauty in some of the bones I found, so I started first to paint them and more recently to carve into them before painting. I have been very active in making and selling items at the Abbey Mediaeval festival.

Later I took up drawing and painting and I am still working on my skills. Having retired after fifty plus years of General Practice I now have more time to pursue my art and sculpting.
