Richard Dixon Biography

Richard Dixon is a professional fine artist of 32 years experience having exhibited globally for the past 25 years.

He has owned galleries and art publishing enterprises operating on a worldwide scale, currently using these skills to manage art projects related to exhibitions of his own art and that of other talented artists.

Since the fall of 2005, he has been concentrated upon developing as a plein air artist of landscapes, having taken painting expeditions to Northern California, the Superstition Mountains of Arizona, and along the Oregon coast in an effort to experience as many varying forms of light and landscape as possible.

The primary focus of his art is the presentation of images that reflect the history, cultures, landscape and mythology of Western Canada and the Western Arctic regions.

To this end he has for the last 20 years created paintings that are historical dramas of life in Western Canada during the eras of the fur trade and native occupation of the land, many of which hang in major corporate, government, museum and private collections worldwide.

His series "The Canadian Spirit Series" were the official gift presentations at the 1988 Calgary Winter Olympics.
