About

Dawn Lavinia Paints

An American expat in Australia, Dawn struggled to smoosh motherhood into her already complex identity. That didn’t stop her searching for bliss, and kangaroos, even without a map.

Fumbling around led to a dormant love for writing and acrylic paint. A renewed sense of passion for creating helped Dawn rediscover her identity. Ultimately, this helped her heal from postnatal depression.

Dawn lives with her farm-raised, Aussie husband (whom she met in Malaysia) and their two daughters.

Aside from raising humans and doing laundry, she’s always creating. Creating sentences, recipes, artwork, projects… anything to keep a slight focus on something other than motherhood.

With many interests comes many blog topics but the main focus of Kangaroo Spotting is honest-parenting, creativity, and wellbeing.
