All AV Artists by Name
I love to go about my work allowing my subconscious mind to reveal itself to me. It is quite a practice to balance between the principles of art and intuition; although they tend to become the same. This way of art making has helped me see and overcome many ego aspects of my personality and I love to explain my work to others, as they always see something different and when they hear my story around a piece they are often amazed at the depth of meaning.
In my need to explore and expand from traditional painting, I found the fluid art community and fell in love with the technique. With this technique, there is a ‘fusing art with technology’ facet. A piece can start with random elements, then be led to subsequent layers towards a subject, or just allowed to flow indiscriminately, creating an abstract work of combined colors and flow patterns. Various pouring mediums are used to obtain specific results and reactions within the pour, depending on if it has an acrylic or alcohol ink base. The result of the piece of art is that each one is unique and original.
In my view, where I am today is an on going process that is connected to my past service and overall compassion for others. Through my art work, I express the belief that love and peace throughout our world is achievable. Also, through art, I aim to inspire others with the faith and courage to support reaching that goal of world peace.
I’m still enthralled with creating my own images. I’ve spent a couple of years studying under various instructors who have inspired me till this day. I hope to see photography and all the arts brought to the forefront of our community, where artists have a chance to inspire one another, and all upcoming artists have a chance to come into the limelight.
As a child Frank Dixon loved to read fairy tales. At age 7 he started writing his own stories and drawing pictures to go with them. His whole life he has loved looking at and creating magical fantasy paintings. Some of his most memorable images are of his imaginary world of “Treetch” (tree creatures).
The burden of creativity drives me. The written word drives most of my creations. I have produced films, music and theatre between San Francisco and New York City. I wish to do the same here in the Antelope Valley. Though art can be, and at times needs to be, a solitary activity, collaborations are tremendous fun and larger media projects require creative and artistic conspiracy. I seek out and invite both types of expression into my life.
I was inspired at an early age by the sounds of hooves, paws, and talons as an animal runs across a surface, as well as anthropomorphic animal characters in Japanese anime and video games. I am currently driven by incorporating Kawaii fashion and Kawaii elements into my work. I like Read more…
I believe in the power of art for arts sake. There is a lot of power in a piece to bring out emotion, whether we are aware of this or not. We are attracted to something because it is a projection of our unconscious feelings. This interaction helps us to remain curious and aware to the beautiful world around us.
In addition to writing, I enjoy exercise, and learning about fitness and health. I also love art, especially 20th century paintings. Another interest is history. A particular period that I find fascinating is the second half of the 20th Century. Everything, from political events to the popular music from the 1950s up to the close of the century are of interest to me.

Those are the most precious moments to me, it gives me the feeling that this is what I was made to do. This is where my heart is.
I’ve always had an interest in showing the human condition. Suffering inspires me. Unfortunately, due to long-term illness, I’ve had to point my camera from people to objects.
