Lee-Ann Dixon


Born in 1966, Lee-Ann Dixon holds a Bachelor of Visual Arts from NMIT (Nelson Marlborough Institute of Technology).

Lee-Ann’s paintings are tributes to life’s transience.

“As my life changes, so does my artwork. Mostly it is an ongoing theme of motherhood and domesticity. But as my children grow older, I have more time to reflect and remember my own childhood and identity, and this is reflected in my artworks.”

Birds, moths, crockery and skulls all feature in Lee-Ann’s petite artworks; small studies that preserve, in paint, imagined moments and the passing of time.

Painting with oils on vintage serving ware, the artist draws upon the imagined history of each re-purposed piece; “I think about the memories that might have been attached to each object.”
