Nofa Dixon has been an art educator, a professional artist and an active member of the Jacksonville Community for several decades. She served as Curator of Education at the Jacksonville Art Museum for twelve years prior to becoming a faculty member in the Art and Design Department at UNF where she teaches Drawing, Painting and Design classes. She served as an Artist-in-Residence for Duval County Schools, 1997–1999 and in 1998 was awarded the Art Educator of the Year by the Cultural Council of Greater Jacksonville.

Her hand-constructed clay forms undergo multiple glaze firings and are finished with a mixed media surface treatment resulting in a unique signature style. Her work is included in major corporate and private collections. A few years ago she completed three major commissions for the Art in Public Places Program funded by the Cultural Council of Greater Jacksonville, Baptist South Hospital and the Women's Center of Jacksonville. Her sculptures and clay vessels are included in many private and corporate collections and have been on display in galleries throughout the United States.
