Makers Connect says
Fresh pops of Mid Century Modern color!

We're thrilled to invite everyone to come celebrate spring with us alongside these ebulient, lively, and colorful paintings and collages of local artist Selena Dixon!

Selena lives a stone's throw from Makers Connect, and yet we were unaware of her talent until very recently. With a background in geology and a lifelong penchant for quilting, Selena has successfully melded a love for graphic, even blocky forms with amazing color choices that only a love for nature can imbue.

Originally from upstate NY, she has lived most of her life in Texas. Since retirement, she has parlayed her life's career in geosciences
onto the canvas in the form of vivid, crisp lines and color palettes that resonate with a deep seated love of nature. Selena has recently moved to Dallas from Houston, and works as diligently on caring for her family and grandchildren as she does on her artwork.

Her art has garnered a number of awards. Most recently she was chosen by a jury to join the ranks of the New Texas Talent show at Craighead Green Gallery, a tradition that has deep and wide roots in the Dallas art community particularly.

We met by chance recently when she attended a Makers Connect "Meetup" event (open to anyone interested in arts/crafts) and after a glimpse at her canvasses, knew that she was a perfect fit for our store.... even if paintings have not proven to be our particular forte over the past few years. However, we just really loved what she's doing and thankfully, she agreed to let us borrow some of her works for your enjoyment!

Come take a gander and say hi!
