Come celebrate the nascient dawning of Spring with the ebulient, lively, and colorful works of Selena Dixon!
With a background in geology and a lifelong penchant for quilting, Selena has successfully melded a love for graphic, even blocky forms with amazing color choices that only a love for nature can imbue.
Hailing from upstate NY, she has lived most of her life in Texas. She parlayed an interest in minerals and science into a life-long career in the geosciences. She has since retired and resides now Dallas, working as diligently on caring for her family and grandchildren as she does on her artwork.
The latter has garnered a number of awards. Most recently she was chosen by a jury to join the ranks of ...the New Texas Talent show at Craighead Green Gallery, a tradition that has deep and wide roots in the Dallas art community particularly.
We met by chance recently when she attended a Makers Connect "Meetup" event (open to anyone interested in arts/crafts) and after a glimpse at her canvasses, knew that she was a perfect fit for our store.... even if paintings have not proven to be our particular forte over the past few years. However, we just really loved what she's doing and thankfully, she agreed to let us borrow some of her works for your enjoyment!
Come take a gander and say hi!
