Timothy David Dixon was born on April 6, 1947, in San Francisco, California. He attended school in Petaluma, and he has lived most of his life in northern California's Sonoma County. Learning very early that he was an artist, he began to draw at three and to paint at six. Encouraged by his parents to develop his talent, and mentored by mature artists, he studied at museums, galleries, and the library as often as he could. He has worked in oils since age eleven.
Painting with a unique California style in both studio and plein air environments, he works with a wide variety of themes. He has had several one artist exhibitions. He has won numerous awards in many regional and state juried exhibitions. In additon, his work has been a part of an award-winning special exhibit at the California State Fair.
Timothy feels that he was born to be an artist, although it has taken many years to develop his talent to its current technical state. He dedicates much of his time immersed in the rainbow of his palette. He also spends time giving demonstrations and private instruction.
