Spotted! Dawn Tan



Dawn Tan creates fun and fancy children’s illustrations in watercolors.

“Because of global warming, most of our beloved animal species don’t get to live on forever. And that’s really a horrible thought! I See You is a self portrait done for a children’s book, which I wrote about a year ago. At that time, there was a lot of talk about global warming and endangered animal species. So I decided to do my part as an artist, by coming up with a picture book on how climate change affects the animals, and it’s titled ‘The Big Move’. My art has always been happy and cheerful. I know it’s a big ambition, but hopefully my optimism in my art will create an awareness and make an impact one day.”



A month ago Dawn Tan moved to Melbourne to study. She spends most of her days working in her little studio and painting in art school.

“I’m currently working on a series of oil paintings based on tiny found bits from my nature trails. I’ve just learned how to do a proper oil painting. Before that, I was very much self taught in the area of fine arts, since I majored in Graphic Design. But I was already experimenting and working with water colors and collage based works when pursuing my design diploma. I’m trying to move away from water colors though and try something new.”

Spotted! is a digest of fly work by fresh off creatives.
