Nathan Dixon was born in Toronto, Canada (1983). He was raised in Jamaica and returned to Toronto at the age of 12.
From a young age he showed a natural talent for art. In high school he excelled in art and honed his artistic career by showcasing his work in a couple of local exhibitions. After graduating in 2001 he majored in Textile Design at Sheridan College Art & Design School. After a couple of years he realized that it was not the right path for him and left in 2003. In 2004 he attended George Brown College majoring in Fashion Design and in 2006 graduated from the“Fashion Techniques & Design” program. For the past few years he has been designing jewellery under his own brand, Nathan Dixon Art, formally Nate Inc. Designs. He is currently working as a freelance artist & designer.
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.

This Illustration is for the tarot card "Ten Of Pentacles" for the Emerging Toronto Artist. For the past couple of years the Emerging Toronto Artist have designed a deck of tarot cards with each card being designed by a Toronto artist.
This card coming to me was divine intervention. I was having a bit of a rough time in life when I was assigned this card. My interpretation of this card was to bring out more of a youthful, strong & sensual aspect rather than the traditional old wise man. I chose a young strong Goddess figure, she has tattoos & runes symbolizing the attributes of the card such as Wisdom, Life, Love, Strength, Wealth, Heart & Luck.
