Roxy is a Murrieta, California based artist working with oil and watercolor who appreciates the simple things in life. She was gaining notoriety as a Stand-up Comedian in Los Angeles when in 2010, a life-threatening incident left her unable to perform. In search of tranquility and wide-open spaces, she escaped to wine country and returned to painting with a focus on the romances of life found in the beauty of living things. Her artwork is alive; exuding color and motion evocative of positive thoughts and reflection. She aims to create living landscapes wherein a viewer feels like they can walk into the painting and experience all the sensations that inspired it. Her unique, idiosyncratic style paintings have elements of Romanticism paired with Impressionism and Post-Impressionism. 300Magazine refers to her work as a contemporary “Romantic Impressionism”.
"My purpose is to lure observers away from the vagaries of life by inviting them to experience moments of relaxation and tranquility in living landscapes. Heavily influenced by Monet and Van Gogh, I feel a painting is a partial glimpse into a scene and my paintings are incomplete without the contribution of the thoughts and perceptions of the viewer."
