"Giraffe" print on canvas
14 x 11" print on canvas by Sandra Dixon.
Where I lived has always greatly influenced my art. I was raised in Clearfield, Pennsylvania and grew up in farm country. Walking in the fields and forests, as well as being around animals gave me a great love for the outdoors. Living near New York City for several years and then living for a much longer time on the Navajo Indian reservation in Arizona and New Mexico provided other strong influences. I now live in Fort Smith, Arkansas where I am learning more about the South.
I have been enjoying the life of an artist since I retired as a teacher. I now have time to work on my life dream of enjoying and creating art. The paintings you will see in my collection are a combination of light and shadow. In my still life, landscape, drawings, and abstract creations are a keen sense of richness of color, balance and movement. Hopefully, the dramatic use of light will captivate your eye as you wonder through the paintings.
