"Oyster Stripes" is a square medium format original mixed media painting by best-selling American artist, Amy Dixon. Three abstract oysters live against the vibrant background of blues, greens and purples. The artist brings in her playfulness by creating the namesake with many colors finding home over a big periwinkle stripe at the bottom of the piece. This painting measures 30 x 30 inches, and is framed in a champagne floater frame measuring 32 x 32 x 2 inches.
Born and raised in Louisiana, Colorado-based artist Amy Dixon studied studio art and painting at the Newcomb College of Tulane University, and completed her post-graduate studies at Studio Art Center International in Florence, Italy. In addition, she has taken masters classes with Kim English in Denver, as well as participated in workshops by Wolf Kahn in New York. Her work has twice been featured on the front cover of The Aspen Times, and the February/March 2014 edition of Traditional Home. In addition, Dixon has published two books with Pelican Publishing Co, "The Cajun Night After Christmas," and "Whose Tripping Under My Bridge?"
Amy creates a particular dialogue with the viewer as her work embraces the uncertainties life has to offer and an inquisitive eye. In order to create movement in her work, she focuses on living in the present moment and following her creative impulses as she encounters them.
