Jane Eve Dixon

There are many paths to becoming an artist. Jane Evelyn Dixon took the path of learning, realising her dreams at Carmarthen School of Art, achieving a First Class BA Hons Degree in Fine Art Photography. She was inspired by the work of Graham Sutherland and, driven by her passion for the sea and the landscape, Jane remained at Carmarthen for another three years, studying ‘Fine Art ~ Painting Drawing & Printmaking’.

A ‘sand grown ‘un’, born in Morecambe, Jane has always been drawn to the sea.  She has also always been artistic, having an early career in musical theatre and television, before meeting her husband John and settling down to have a family.  They moved to Pembrokeshire in 1998 and it was whilst out at sea, taking images of diving Gannets, that John introduced Jane to Photography.

Jane now works in a range of mediums. Using natural and directed light, Jane’s camera creates images of her unique personal vision. Her camera is also a tool to aid her painting. However, Jane believes that it is the intimacy of creating a drawn image that brings life to her paintings; that the rigour of engagement creates a connection that flows deep into her subconscious mind and melds with her own unique perspective to create her painting.

Whilst studying her degree, in 2012, Jane was an ‘Ilford Darkroom’ and ‘Harman Digital’ Student of the Year Finalist, & her evocative still life images of Poppies were exhibited at the NEC, in the ‘Harman Awards’ exhibition.

Then, in 2013, her image ‘The Tides of Time’ was chosen for ‘The Worshipful Company of Clockmakers’ exhibition in London at Sotheby’s Bond Street Gallery.

Finally on completing her degree, Jane was asked to represent Fine Art Photography with her Degree Show installation, ‘Spirit of Ynyslas ~ Cantre Gwaelod’ , in King Street Gallery’s prestigious ‘Graduate of the Year’ exhibition in Carmarthen.

 Jane’s work can be seen at the Set House, St Brides, in Pembrokeshire.
