To date, Dawn has worked across a breadth of mediums, motives and scale ranging from collage, photography and illustration; to light, space and ephemeral installations.
In 2009, her voluminous installation I Fly like Paper, received much press across Channel News Asia and the Business Times, who coined Dawn the new tour de force of the local art scene. Following which, her solo, WALTER, garnered more media attention for its controversial guerrilla content and form, and was later acquired into the permanent collection of the Singapore Art Museum, and shown in France. A range of Dawn's work has since been commissioned by private and public collectors, as well as local and foreign museums.
In 2013, Dawn participated in the inaugural Art Basel Hong Kong with her solo, SIXTEEN, followed by A THING OF BEAUTY, which opened at the Art Paris Art Fair at the Grand Palais in 2015. In 2016, Dawn was commissioned by the Fondation d'enterprise Hermes to inaugurate their Singapore flagship's permanent gallery space with a solo installation, HOW TO DISAPPEAR INTO A RAINBOW. In 2017, Dawn participated in the Jeju Biennale, at the Jeju Museum of Art, Korea.
