Jimmy Dixon was born in England, but was sent away to a childrens’ home in Australia at the age of six. When Jimmy was twenty, he returned to England and applied for a place at the Royal College of Art. He was not accepted. “They told me I would never be good enough.” Since then Jimmy has exhibited his work at St. Johns crypt in Waterloo and many other places. “In art rules can be broken too. I may do landscapes, I may use impressionist techniques but I am not a landscapist or an impressionist. My work is never of a particular place – it is universal”.
