Dixie was born and raised in the Crowsnest Pass, surround by her horses and the beauty of the mountains. She has worked in radiology and cardiovascular disciplines since 1980 and resides with her husband and family on a ranch in the magnificent Wildcat Hills west of Cochrane. On the ranch, Dixie divides her time between family, painting and training horses.
Inspiration from her mother's paintings laid the foundation and passion for a lifelong bond with art. She strives to capture mountain scenery and the western way of life and focuses on portraying the working cowboy with oil and watercolours. With the endless subject matter and inspiration available to her, Dixie strives to ignite an emotion and the feeling of 'being there' in her pieces.
Many of Dixie's paintings can be found in private and corporate collections.
She has been a member of the Cochrane Art Club since 1988.
