Welcome, I am Donna Dixon and I'm a painting artist living in Northern Georgia-USA, and work out of my home studio, True Vine. Northern Georgia is surrounded by the foothills of the Great Smokey Mountains, so of course nature plays an important role in my life.
I am self-taught and found my love of art at a young age. I have been fortunate enough to have lived in both Texas and Georgia.
I would describe my artwork as vivid, positive and uncomplicated.
I am inspired by Impressionist painters, nature is one of my most common sources of inspiration, and elephants are one of my favorite subjects. I support efforts to protect both African and Asian elephants, along with other endangered species. I am drawn to help efforts to stop the cruelty of certain practices especially in Asia, the Far East, and Eastern Europe.
I want to show in my artwork how everything is best left and appreciated undisturbed, unadulterated. The result I want to accomplish is a creative or peaceful "time warp" for the viewer. I would like for my artworks to help activate the creativity of ones own mind by giving pause and leaving a lot of possibilities up to the viewer.
I use mostly oils, acrylics and some mixed media." You may spot some of my artwork in the background of a Hollywood movie. Two of my paintings entitled "Chickadees" & "TwoBears" can be seen in the 2012 film Wanderlust -a Universal Studios comedy produced by Judd Apatow, directed by David Wain and starring Paul Rudd with Jennifer Aniston.
I have work featured for a previous collection curated by Rebecca Wilson, Chief Curator at the Saatchi Gallery London.

I spend most of time painting and caring for my adopted pets and what I call as "living my dream and enjoying every minute of it."
