Meet Dixie Dellamorto!

American artist and creative producer, Dixie Dellamorto, was born June 4th 1987 in Westchester, PA. Her mother is an artist and Leather-crafter and her father is a sheet metal worker and musician. 

At a young age Dixie was an advanced artist who often butt heads with instructors in school and therefore is mostly self-taught. However, she did study Animation at the art institute of Philadelphia.

Multi-talented and multi-disciplined, she crafted award winning fantasy costumes and made paintings for publications, art shows, DVD covers, posters, films, TV shows, and promotions. Her work is informed by her love of B-Movies, Horror, Retro Pop Culture, and Kitsch.

 

This led to a love of TV Horror Hosts. The NY based show ‘Ghoul A Go-Go’ was a subject of her paintings and she became close with the cast. Her genre inspired art also attracted the attention of the California based Nationally Syndicated Horror Host Mr. Lobo. The two became fast friends and Dixie became an assistant producer for his show, ‘Cinema Insomnia’.

 

 

Dixie moved to California in 2010 and was co-producer, editor, and stage director for a live ‘Cinema Insomnia’ show at the guild Theater in Sacramento. She started a successful Kickstarter campaign to fund a 10th TV season. She created ‘Horror Hosts and Creature Features’. A magazine which featured her painting, design work, writing, and an in-depth interview with Karen Lewis, widow of Al “Grandpa” Lewis.

 

She continues to sell her artwork and does commissions in between working on TV shows, films, and live appearances with Mr. Lobo. She designed an on screen ad for Blobfest in Phoenixville. She appeared in ‘A Hard Days Nightmare’ in a costume she created and did make up for 10 zombies for the upcoming film ‘Plan 9’-in which she also appears as a victim.

On Friday the 13th of January, 2012 , Dixie married Mr. Lobo at a small ceremony and had a fun reception at John’s Incredible Pizza.
