I spend a lot of time hiking, sketching, and painting in and around our local rivers, coves, inlets and protected places. Seeing local wildlife in its environment just adds to that "perfect day." This piece is on gallery wrapped canvas and the painting continues around the sides. It comes ready to hang.

Getting to Know Roxanne

Some paintings have the power to draw a person from across the room. Those are the artworks that Roxanne Steed loves the most. For her, the two best things about a painting are color and texture. To add interesting edges to her paintings, she uses everything from a palette knife to a squeegee. She loves celebrating the beauty of life and enjoys gardening — including “therapeutic weeding” — and planning where to travel next. She has traveled to Ireland for many years to paint.
