Welcome to the web page of Marian Dixon,  Equine and animal artist.
Paintings created of your horse, dog, cat or other pet.


Most people are passionate, highly emotional or downright obsessive about their pets. In many cases, they are all of the above. Whether your animal is a prized race horse, show jumper, champion best of breed at a dog show or a beloved recycled dog or cat from the local animal shelter, they all occupy a special place in our hearts.
I have focused my passion for animals into creating works of art to celebrate the unique position they occupy in our lives, whether they are domestic or wildlife.  Most of my work is created using my own photographs, as I value the connection I feel between the animal and the camera, which then translates on to the canvas.
Browse the galleries  to view a selection of some of my previous paintings.  Some of these images are still for sale, while others have been sold and are in private collections.

I held my second successful solo exhibition entitled “Thriving, Surviving and Endangered” in November 2017.  The exhibition was a collection of my most recent works including domestic pets, native birds, wildlife and some threatened or endangered species.  More recently, new paintings were added to this web page in August 2018, and 2019, so I invite you to view the galleries.

You can now buy some of my paintings directly by visiting my shop Dixon Designs
