February 2023 2-D Featured Artist Rosemary Dixon Sexton
Rosemary Dixon Sexton is a native of Canton, North Carolina who now divides her time between studios in Port Charlotte and Maggie Valley, North Carolina. She is a professional, fine artist recognized for her romantically realistic paintings of the people, places and subjects that are dear to her.
As a full-time artist, Rosemary finds all mediums fascinating, but oil consumes most of her studio time. Her artwork is an expression of the joy and peace she experiences in the simple beauty of life, especially in the faces of people she loves and strangers she meets.
She explores the relationship of elements, quality of light, the atmosphere and color harmonies in creating her visual poetry. “I hope to engage the viewer in the magic I’ve created with brush and paint,” she said. Her paintings have garnered awards both regionally and nationally and are found in collections throughout the southeastern United States and Canada.
