Our area is home to so many talented individuals with all sorts of gifts and artistic ability that I get excited when I discover one. Dixie Dodd, of Midlothian, is one of those talented people. Her medium is wood, and she is a custom furniture designer and builder of the first order! She not only designs her creations but she actually builds them.
She is a petite young mother of 5 children and looking at her you would never imagine that this young lady is a powerhouse furniture designer and builder. This reporter has seen her furniture creations and designs and they are unique. Her studio and work area are located in her garage where she creates some amazing pieces of custom furniture and millwork. From dining tables, cabinets, to doors, she seems to come up with unique designs that are marvelous. How she juggles this artistic energy and talent and at the same time take care of her family is just amazing.
Below are some photos of her work. These are all once of a kind tables, doors, benches, and cabinets.
