ARTIST STATEMENT- I would like for my artworks to cause the viewer to have a moment to be reminded of how fragile life is, somewhere between beauty and transcendence.
Leaving a viewer with their own thoughts or views of what is on a canvas is an even better result.
I am fascinated with not just animal behavior, but also the human 'animal' and especially behavior in groups, pods, herds and society.
I am captured by the beauty of animals and nature. This is a never-ending fascination.
I currently use oils, acrylics and some mixed media. Most paintings I work in layers of paint and I truly enjoy painting.'
Impressionist painters, people, nature and of course wildlife are some of her most inspiring subjects'
Dixon was one of the featured artists who had artwork included in a previous collection for Saatchi Online, curated by Ms Rebecca Wilson, Chief Curator at the Saatchi Gallery London.

It wasn't the spotlight Donna Dixon craved when she was growing up. She got her kicks behind the scenes. In school, she took the opportunity to paint sets and scenic props, as opposed to acting on the stage.
Today, instead of high school plays, you may spot her art in the background of Hollywood movies. Two paintings of Dixon's can be seen in the 2012 Universal Studios film 'Wanderlust' - a comedy produced by Judd Apatow, directed by David Wain and starring Paul Rudd with Jennifer Aniston.
Dixon says she spends most of time painting, and caring for her adopted pets and supports efforts to save African and Asian elephants from extinction and cruelty.
