Kaye Dixon

Kaye’s love of photography started when she won a camera at a school fete. In her 40s she founded a Holistic healing school and studied Visual Arts of Photography.

The central themes in her work, a love of nature, mythology and concern for the environment are underpinned by her belief in the sacredness of all things.

In her current work she combines sculpture, (built from found artifacts) painting, and digital photography to produce hand-made prints. She specialises in 19th century photographic printing techniques, particularly gum bichromate, platinum, ziatype and cyanotype processes.

Kaye acknowledges the ongoing repression of women and devastation of the environment and the strong link between the two. Kaye likes to re-imagine woman’s place in the world.

Kaye exhibits internationally and nationally.

Kaye lives and works on Dja Dja Wurrung Country.
