Dawn Sandy is Yindjibarndi artist from Roebourne who began painting in 2006. She is the daughter of the late Yindjibarndi artist Celia Sandy, and niece to prominent artists Aileen and Allery Sandy, with whom Dawn credits with first teaching her to mix her distinctive colours. Dawn's artworks are often painted from an aerial perspective, overlaying dot work in warm colours. Dawn draws inspiration from her Country at different times of the year, the river and bush flowers during different seasons, the rocks, and the rich colours that pass over their surfaces at varying times of the day. She has exhibited her artworks in the Pilbara, Perth, and Sydney; and has won the Cossack Art Award for Painting by Western Australian Indigenous Artist (2010).
