Roxane always loved art as a child and did well in all art classes winning many contests and most notably a freeway billboard of her chalk drawing located near her town prompting her to attend the Seattle Art Institute for Visual Communications as well as taking Business and Programming courses in college.
She ended up working in business and did some engineering excelling in 3D design and then her love for computer programming took over and she worked her way through all the various fields in business still drawing, sketching and utilizing her creative artistic talents for fun and friends.
The combination of her mother, an avid painter, giving her an easel and her starting her own consulting IT business a few years ago provided her the time between clients to start painting which she has now become passionate about as can be seen in her vivid dreamlike works of art.
I have always had a love for art and nature and have been in the habit of sketching since I was a child. As I grew older, I would sketch out dreams and visions along with ideas or feelings but never doing more with them. As I became an adult, somehow everything disappeared but these sketchbooks which followed me and I started painting them a few years ago as time allowed. At first very slow as oils were new to me and then I painted the Eye on the Planet and it only took a couple days so gave me a boost of confidence and I loved how it was simple yet conveyed so much. This was my inspiration and burst of creativity along with my new budding awakening, I now have an outlet for my creativity.
I have tried a variety of styles but seem to always use lots of color as I love it. My favorite style is very colorful and blended surrealism with hidden images throughout although I do enjoy the natural landscapes as well. I try to always add some small or large pointers to spiritual awakening or consciousness for the viewer to think about long after as I have always enjoyed those types of paintings as well.
