This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following was submitted by the artist:

Henry Dixon paints predominately in watercolor, and is a painter in realist style, whose subjects are people, places and things---figures, landscape and still life. His figures are mainly those of children and the elderly, whose actions and demeanors seem unpretentious and natural. He tries to capture his figures as they really are.

His landscapes are those that are rocky terrain, i.e., Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, Rocky Mountains, etc. His still life's take on an abstract quality when mixed with a strong light source. Depicting light on his subjects is what evokes for him the most pleasure from his painting.

Born in Jacksonville, Florida, he grew up in Chicago, Illinois with his mother, an older brother and three sisters. While attending elementary school there he occasionally got into trouble for drawing when he should have been finishing his class assignments. At the age of 18, he and his mother and siblings moved to Niles, Michigan, where he graduated from high school and later attended Western Michigan University and received his formal art training.

He holds a Bachelor's of Art Degree in Art and Master of Arts Degree in Graphic Design. After graduation, he was recruited by a major greeting card company in Kansas, City, Missouri where he now resides and works out of his studio. Henry has a wife (Rena) and three sons (Rodney, Reginald, and Ryan).

He is intrigued and awed by the works of such masters as Winslow Homer, John Singer Sargent and Thomas Moran. Homer and Sargent for their figures and Moran for his stunning landscapes. Henry's major tool for capturing his subjects is one of his best friends, his camera.

Dixon was selected as one of five artists to represent North America in London, England at St. James Palace for the Winson and Newton World-Wide Millennium Painting Competition, "Our World in the year 2000". Fifty-one (51) countries from around the world were represented including the U.S.A. There were over 22,000 entries, a record that made the Guinness Book of World Records. HRH The Prince of Wales, Prince Charles himself, chaired the Judging Committee or panel. The show was also exhibited in Stockholm, Brussels and the United Nations Building in New York as well as London.

He became a Signature member of the National Watercolor Society in 1995 of which the records from 1920-1995 of which the records from 1920 to 1995 which included artists and slides of their work became a part of the permanent collection of the Smithsonian Institution Art Archives in Washington, D.C.
