1st Runner Up

Marcus Dixon - 2(4)

Marcus Dixon, also known as Rob Rozay, is a central Ohio based artist whose talent focuses primarily on realism. As a child, Marcus was surrounded by creativity and always encouraged by his mother Michelle to embrace his talent, explore the many artistic mediums and share his passion for art with the world. Life changed dramatically for him in 2016, when his mother – his biggest supporter – was diagnosed with breast cancer. He took some time away from academics to help care for her and witnessed first-hand how she fought her battle with bravery and courage until ultimately and devastatingly, she lost. Choosing to use her story as inspiration, he decided to focus on the creative skills that she had originally helped him harness and begin painting. To celebrate and honor his mother’s legacy, he wanted to share his gift with the world – the same encouragement she had given him years before. Without looking back, he decided to pursue his passion for art full-time.
