Dixie Browning



Browning is an award winning artist whose work pays tribute to the island her family has inhabited for than 300 years. Taking time out from painting rich, green forests, creeks winding through lush marshes and wind-shaped dunes, she wrote 105 published romances, historical and contemporary, before returning to painting. Her work can be seen in several area galleries.
