Dixie joined Mid-Southern Watercolorists in 1971, just a year after its founding. She has dedicated much of her time volunteering. She served as president from 1975 to 1977, devoting countless hours to the exhibition committee, and to the newsletter. It is important to note that Dixie was happy to, and often did, lend her resources to all aspects of the organization. She is deserving of this recognition due to her dedication to watercolor and the arts.
She has elevated the stature of watercolor via education and her many works. Dixie has traveled and painted with Milford Zornes in Mexico and across Europe, and in turn, taught workshops across many other watercolor societies, painted with fellow MSW members, and even filled in for Polly Laibner’s AETN show. She enjoys painting “anything that is fun” landscapes, cityscapes, and abstracts. Dixie has been accepted into the Mid-Southern Watercolorists Annual Juried Exhibition
