Welcome to my website. My name is Charlotte Dixon, author and illustrator of children's picture books. Early drawings on walls and scribbles on book pages led me to higher learning. In pursuit of my creativity, I studied at Sacramento State College, participated in courses at Children's Book Academy (formerly Picture Book Academy), Kidlit College, Kidlit Summer School, Angie Karcher's poetry class, Kristen Fulton's nonfiction class, Sally Apokedak's Writing Fiction That Sings, and Arree Chung's Bootcamp Drawing. Workshops, conferences, retreats, and webinars are always a part of my journey. I'm a member of SCBWI and Julie Hedlund's 12x12. In my spare time, I seek that perfect piece of lemon pie served with a hot cup of Kona coffee.
