What pieces of your identity do you transfer into your art?

In my candy and toy series I hope the part of me that comes through is my sense of humor and love of storytelling. Everything I create has some part of me in it whether it’s funny or serious or strange. Everything is a self-portrait.

Roxanne’s Bio:

” I was raised in Los Angeles and have been making art since I was a kid, always drawing, painting, and making up stories.  My influences derive not just from fine art, but from such diverse areas as film, music and performance. 

I attended California Institute for the Arts for animation and worked in the animation field for a number of years.  Animation proved to be a continuation of my education in drawing and design, while at the same time influencing the craft and narrative in my paintings.”
