Dawn’s creative side goes back to her childhood. She explored art and craft especially enjoying needlework and painting. She’s taken classes and workshops along the way and discovered new materials and techniques and learned more and more about ‘form’. Dawn’s interest in making beautiful things from ‘experienced’ instrument strings is a way to relate her love of form with music. Dawn also likes the idea of recycling these shiny, durable, and well- made metal objects, saving them from going into the landfill—giving them an Encore.
