Dawn Allen was born in South London in 1943. As a child, she loved to cut out paper shapes to make scrapbooks, and paper clothes for cardboard dolls. Dawn's creative bent continued into her adult life, when she introduced her own children to the joys of flower pressing, potato printing and making designs from painted leaves. She later learn the art of three-dimensional paper craft, which very quickly became her passion. Having gained a teaching certificate, she became a qualified tutor teaching various crafts at an adult education centre. Finding that her own handmade three-dimensional cards and pictures sold well at local craft fairs, Dawn eventually opened her own craft shop in 1996 where she also runs private classes in three-dimensional paper work and other crafts with the help of her family and staff.
