Growing up in the south shore of Nova Scotia in Chester, Dijon has been surrounded by the natural beauty of the region and by art his entire life. His mother Rosalie Bishop and his father Donald Curley, are both established artists in their own right, through their encouragement and influence, he has acquired his own expressive voice in his art.
He draws inspiration from the local landscape. growing up along the ocean coast, he was exposed to rural life, the beauty and simplicity of the area. Trees, sky, open fields punctuated by his use of light, are transformed into dramatic vistas
Executed by his heartfelt response to his environment, his deep appreciation for the landscape is obvious to the viewer, whether it is a field of golden wheat or a coastal scene of deep blue.
Dijon has had successful showings at the Teichert Gallery in Halifax , Nova Scotia. In both solos and group shows for the past 12 years and also Amicus Gallery in Chester, Nova Scotia. he has collections in Canada, the United States, Europe and Asia.
He now resides in Peterborough, Ontario, Canada.
