Cameron Dixon has been a serious painter and artist for two decades and a casual painter throughout his life. He is backed by two Fine Arts degrees, one in visual fine arts (majoring in painting, photography, printmaking and drawing) and the other in new media (majoring in video, graphic design, and web). He has had a variety of art shows throughout Western Canada since 1995 but lately has concentrated too much effort into living life and not enjoying it artistically. With a wide variety of talents under his belt he always tends to come back to painting and photography. Barks and Recreation is allowing Cameron to build on his natural talents again and to share it with others who love their animals as much as he loves his own pets.
