This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following is from Broschofsky Galleries:

David Dixon was born and raised in West Central New Jersey as well as living in New York City. His highly successful career as a chef took him around the world. He qualified for the 1992 culinary olympic team and was one of the few Americans to hold all chef positions in a French Michelin three star restaurant. He also made appearances on the cooking show "Great Chefs of the East." Up to this point David had no background in art, nor did he know that his family included a great lineage of artists in all disciplines.

A chance meeting in 1995 brought David together with well-known Utah artist Steven Lee Adams, and on a whim he picked up a paintbrush for the first time. He instantly felt a new calling and began the arduous task of converting from chef to artist. Splitting his time between New York City and the west, David's regime included intensive training with Steven Lee Adams, life drawing across the country and painting at the Arts Students League of New York and in pursuit of more education he continues these endeavors. David was also the only artist to have had the privilege of working under the guidance of American painting master Russell Chatham in Montana.

David started showing his work in galleries in 1997 and the Broschofskys were among the first to give the newcomer an opportunity. At the 1999 Provo Festival juried show, his first, David received the third place award. He also was accepted to the prestigious Spring Salon at the Springville Museum in Utah both years that he entered, 1999 an 2000. * His work is reprinted in the 2000 catalog.

The artist's painting style is constantly evolving, yet it retains much of its early influence from Russell Chatham and other tonalists. His landscapes are moody and sometimes ominous with a sense of reverie.

The artist describes his work: "I prefer to let the painting and brushwork evolve naturally, flowing with the kind of energy in the composition and my feelings toward the subject. Some paintings remain very loose while others may instinctively tighten up lending themselves to a pleasing sense of tension with compositions that make my work easy to recognize. I try to focus on powerful arrangements that I can simplify through underlying geometry, and emphasize the hidden power of landscapes. My scenes are those that are often captured only at a glance while our eyes search for more obvious vistas. I try to freeze some of natures most subtle and gorgeous nuances and merely hint at what may be nearby. Hopefully the viewer is left to feel not only the immediate power of the painting, but also its contemplative and suggestive powers."

David Dixon currently resides in Utah making frequent visits to the east coast, and as he moves into the future, he remains committed to capturing all of the elements that will further define him as a maturing artist.*

Addendum: David also exhibited at the Springville Salon Show in 2001 and received the Merit Award for his painting. It was included in the 2001 catalog.
