About Dixie

Dixie at Summers Past Farms

Dixie works in oil, watercolor, acrylics, and mixed-media, creating paintings on-location and from her photographs with a free-flowing style that is cheerfully impressionistic.

In her paintings she loves to capture the essence of what she sees, describing the scene from her unique perspective.

Dixie’s oil painting, “San Miguel Mountain”, is featured in a new book, Land of Sunlight — Contemporary Paintings of San Diego County. More than 100 fine artists contributed paintings to the book, demonstrating a wide range of artistic styles and techniques. Published in August 2007.

Dixie’s watercolor illustrates a new book of inspirational poetry Wings of the Wind by Diana Wallis Taylor. Visit Diana’s website for more information.

Dixie is the Artist in Residence at Summers Past Farms in Flinn Springs, California. She is a member of the Foothills Art Association and the East County Art Association.
