Roxanne studied Fine Art at DIT and NCAD. She lives and works in Dublin and teaches
art classes. She lives close to the Botanic Gardens, several parks and the sea which
inspire her work; as does the coastline and landscape of Wicklow and West Cork.
Water’s Edge 2017
Roxanne's works show the places in the Irish landscape where the land and water meet.
She interprets that particular part of the landscape by examining the momentary changes.
Her work evokes the heart and breath of the countryside at the water’s edge. She
is not giving a direct image of the place but a rhythmic representation of an inspiring
landscape giving us a better understanding of this environment.
"I work from the landscape, making field trips filling sketchbooks and working back
in the studio from these drawings and photographs. ‘Water’s Edge', captures this
fragile, changeable environment, mingling my own responses and feeling into the painting.
The surface is sometimes thick with paint, counter balanced with areas of imaginative
brushstroke to create a surface that remains vibrant, evoking the rich orchestration
of our natural environment.
