About The Artist: Amy Dixon
“ART IS LIFE! EXPAND YOUR MIND! CREATE SOMETHING!”
Born and raised in Monroe, Louisiana, Dixon now lives in Denver with her 3 children and chocolate lab. Dixon approaches painting much as she does her life…intuitively with free expression. “Anything is possible if the art spirit is right.” Direct observation of everyday life and a keen sense of what will work on canvas fuel her passion for exploring fresh subjects as well as revisiting old favorites. The work is about color, immediacy and an intuitive response to the world around her. Inspiration is drawn from paying attention to the moment and recognizing ideas that connect with the soul…color, form, mood, light, music, conversation, dreams. Dixon’s personal journey challenges her to investigate peace, harmony, chaos, fears, stress and laughter of the day… to reveal and paint in response to this LIFE and all its complexities. Going back to her Louisiana roots and the familiar laissez le bon temps rouler…that is, let the good times roll on the canvas! …and she does.
