Each year we have beautiful, fragrant white peonies in our garden, which I love to cut and bring inside to enjoy. I paint with a combination of brushes and palette knives - color and texture are just as important as design elements to me. This piece is on a gallery wrapped canvas and the painting continues around the sides. It comes varnished and 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. Roxanne currently lives in Connecticut.
