Printmaker Profile : Rose Dixie

 

Drypoint print on paper by Rose Dixie

Drawing forms the core of my creative practice. For me it is a means of both trying to convey an experience, and of trying to better understand the experience itself. It is a process of both documentation and discovery.

Although my drawings are always of people, I do not see them as portraits. My figures often evolve through the drawing process taking on my own moods and emotions, becoming expressions of my internal processes, and taking on lives of their own.
