About Roxy

Roxy apprenticed with the late Mark Mugavero from 1992-1997 known for his heavy texture décor art.  She used to borrow his canvases and paint her own artwork on the side which began selling in his gallery. She has been painting part-time for over two decades while she toured the USA as a Professional Stand-up Comedian.  Eight years ago, she shifted to painting full-time and performing occasionally.  She is largely self-taught and often paints sights or amusements from her travels.  In France and England, enamored by the Medieval architecture, she was inspired to paint the Cotswolds, a cluster of small medieval villages once known for their wool production and in present time for their quaint atmospheres and beautiful gardens. The Collection consists of twelve paintings depicting various aspects of the area.   Returning from Paris, she painted the Eiffel Tower and other Romantic Scenes of which all have sold. In Cape Cod, she fell in love with Northern Birds and came home to paint a series of them which have become some of her most coveted artworks due to her unique ability to convey personality and a touch of whimsy in the fluffy creatures.

Roxy is particularly fond of rural landscapes and florals. She typically uses acrylics for smaller works or decorative pieces and oils on Arches Oil Paper for her landscapes.  She is partial to a specific color palette and includes the use of brushes and palette knives.   She displays regularly in Temecula Wine Country and Los Angeles.  Her paintings are collected all over the country and abroad.  She has shipped artwork to England, France, Australia, New Zealand, Portugal, Japan, Canada, and the Netherlands.  Her heavy texture wine related paintings were featured at Lorimar Loft Wine Tasting Room and Gallery.  Her Landscapes were featured at The Gallery at The Merc in Temecula, her Bartender Series (a collection of 7 paintings in modern caricature) currently resides on the walls at the Dresden in Los Angeles, Rural paintings appeared in the December 2018 issue of Inland Empire Magazine, and the Cotswold Collection is currently featured at the Glass Door Restaurant and Lounge in the Porto Vista Hotel located in San Diego’s Little Italy.

Her art has been quoted as being romantic, cheerful and lively. She is known for her unique style of loose Impressionism, the ability to capture personality and convey emotions and for often adding a touch of whimsy in her paintings.

 

Roxy's paintings in miniature sizes are top sellers in shops and online having universal appeal. These are also sold in Temecula Lavender Company, a little French-themed boutique in Old Town Temecula.

Roxy loves castles, the countryside, cooking, reading, excellent wine and entertaining friends. 

Quotes:

"There is room in this world for all types of art.  Keep painting."

"When a painting isn't working, add blue."

Artist Statement

My purpose is to lure observers away from the vagaries of life by inviting them to experience moments of relaxation, pleasure and ultimately, happiness. My artwork suggests escaping- from work, arguments, finances- into simple, beautiful areas evocative of love, tranquility, and occasionally, as with my birds, fun.

Heavily influenced by Monet, I feel a painting is a partial glimpse into a scene wherein the viewer completes it by filling in the details.  This combined with the abandonment of traditional rules and a flair for capturing personality and injecting affinity and occasionally whimsy into even a landscape, would qualify my paintings as a sort of Contemporary Romantic Impressionism. 

She is currently working on extending her bartender series, a new weeping willow collection, a nautical collection, several new surprises, and when not painting, is working on her first novel, a murder mystery village cozy set in wine country.
