Marti Jones Dixon is an American singer-songwriter and visual artist known for her albums and her paintings. She sings, records, and performs as “Marti Jones” and exhibits visual art as “Marti Jones Dixon”. She has more than 10 albums to her credit and has appeared on more than 35 albums including Joe Cocker, The Smithereens, Robert Crenshaw and Mary Chapin Carpenter. Dixon grew up in Ohio where she performed with her sisters in a folk music group and went on to graduate from Kent State with a degree in studio art. She has continued with a duel artistic career having recorded and performed with her producer/husband Don Dixon (REM, The Smithereens, Fetchin Bones) for decades, while creating and exhibiting new visual art.
As a contemporary realist painter, Dixon has been praised for her ability to interestingly and accurately capture the spare, mundane moments of urban, everyday life often using strong, defined lighting in unassuming scenes. This artist’s knack for revealing human nature is shown deceptively simple, yet it is her decided and complex use of color, contrast, and geometry, that subtly bring casual life moments to attention with an overwhelming familiarity.
