I was born in Toronto, Canada (1983). I was raised in Jamaica and returned to Toronto at the age of 12.
In 2001 I studied Textile Design at Sheridan College Art & Design School. After a couple of years I realized that it was not the right path for me! In 2004 I attended George Brown College majoring in Fashion Design and graduating in 2006.
For the past few years I've been designing jewellery under his own brand, Nathan Dixon Art, formally Nate Inc. Designs. I currently work as a freelance artist & designer in the GTA.
My ultimate goal as an artist is to interpret my inspiration in a new and interesting way, be it music, art, history, mythology or world culture.
I'm primarily a portrait artist in the style of urban realism. In my current work I use watercolour, gouache, ink, coloured pencil & graphite. Even though I am inspired by many things and I use a variety of mediums, the common threads you will see in some aspect of my work are texture, saturation and depth.
