Keetra Dean Dixon

Keetra Dean Dixon is a designer and artist working under the handle FromKeetra. 

Her NYC-based workshop tends to focus on non-commissioned work, but occasionally finds the lure of a shiny client job too seductive to resist. Her work has been recognized on several fronts including a place in the permanent design collection at SFMOMA, as STEP magazine’s Emerging Talent in 2009, and as the honorable ranking of ADC Young Gun in 2008. She has been featured in numerous publications, speaking engagements, and exhibitions, most recently including feature articles in Etapes Magazine, works exhibited for the 2009 U.S. Presidential Inauguration, and highlight pieces in several publications by Die Gestalten. Dixon developed many of her core design objectives during her 2004–2006 masters studies at the Cranbrook Academy of Art. Her work has gained notoriety for its friendly, sincere absurdism. Her socially themed objects & installations aim to involve the viewer as an active participant. The pieces create or exemplify heightened emotional moments and often rely on context or unique interactions to complete the work’s narrative. Dixon was born in Anchorage, Alaska in 1977 and currently resides in Baltimore.
