Richard Dixon is from Edmonton, Alberta. For the last 30 years he has created paintings that are historical dramas of life in Western Canada during the eras of the fur trade and native occupation of the land, many of which hang in major corporate, government, museum and private collections worldwide. His project "Alberta History Project" included 100 fully developed paintings of the Alberta region from 1754 to 1905, and was presented at the 100th anniversary of the Province of Alberta. His series "The Canadian Spirit Series" was the official gift presentation at the 1988 Calgary Winter Olympics.
