To put it simply, I love to make art that shifts the oppressions of this world and opens space for joy to the person looking at it. Looking at artwork, bypasses the mind and get’s straight to the heart, where beauty can be felt and experienced. It can change the direction of thoughts – from daily stressors and worries – to the senses and to seeing beauty. It changes the atmosphere of the space!
Fair warning, I believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God who came to earth as a man to die for our sins and that walking and living in His gift of the Holy Spirit, is the only way to live and create anything.

Roxanne lives and works in Arizona with her husband. She was born in Michigan, then spent the majority of her childhood in California’s Napa Valley, where she acquired not only a love of the nearby ocean and wild spaces of the area, but also the free spirited, intuitive approach that today infuses her art.
The relationship between abstraction and spirituality along with a unquenchable sense of wonder of the natural world inspires much of her work. She rarely has a scripted plan for how a painting will be completed and lets mood, intuition and spontaneous gestures act as guides. Her materials include aspen leaves, beeswax, acrylic, oil stick, pigments and tree resin to infuse each painting with its individual energy, depth and luminosity.
Her interest in subjects is only limited by the constraints of time. From exploring the idea of aspen trees – each connected through their root systems as one living organism; the celestial landscapes; the depth of the ocean; the small flower breaking concrete to reach the sun; to geometric blocks of color marrying ancient geological imagery with primitive gemstones – the textures and wonder of life and the interconnectedness of it all supplies her with inspiration to paint for more than a lifetime. Her current focus lies in three series: aspen trees, celestial and atmospheric landscapes.
Roxanne’s work is exhibited throughout the United States. Her commissions include wineries and private clients. Her work is also featured as the poster artist for several events.
Primarily self-taught, Roxanne freely explores new concepts, experiments and develops innovative techniques that characterizes her work.
