John Dixon and his six siblings each migrated to Central Kentucky in the 1980s, inspired by their parent’s values. They made a mutual pledge to find a more desirable quality of life, reside in proximity, and share their lives as a close-knit extended family. For three decades, a remote farm retreat in Casey County has been their unifying focus.
John brings decades of practice as a designer-illustrator to his enthusiasm for wood engraving. He studies annually with Canadian master engraver, Wesley Bates, and prints his editions under the guidance of letterpress authority Gray Zeitz of Larkspur Press in Monterey, Kentucky.
Dixon works from a home-studio in downtown Danville, Kentucky. As a creative professional, he serves a broad range of institutional and corporate clients, while turning to the fine arts for a more personal form of expression.
Works by John Andrew Dixon can be found at the Kentucky Artisan Center at Berea, Berea, KY.
