Donna Dixon is a painting artist and lives in Georgia, USA. She has lived in both Houston and Austin,Texas as well.
Dixon, who is a life long, self taught artist, trained and worked in the Medical Lab field until an early retirement.
Dixon's style has been described as Modern Expressionism.
She describes her artwork as colorful and positive. She says she is inspired by Impressionist painters and nature is one of her most common sources of inspiration, and elephants are one of her favorite subjects. She supports efforts to protect both African and Asian elephants, along with other endangered species.
'I want to show how everything has beauty and is best left and appreciated undisturbed, unadulterated. The result I want to accomplish is a creative or peaceful time warp for the viewer.
I am captured by the beauty & spiritual purity of animals and nature. This is a 'never-ending' fascination.
I am currently using mostly oils or acrylics'
Dixon was honored to have artwork included in a previous collection for Saatchi Online, curated by Ms Rebecca Wilson, Chief Curator at the Saatchi Gallery London.
'Originals for $500 and Under Collection.'
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.
