My life is all about art.
I live and breathe art and design.
I tell people that I was born with a paintbrush in my hand. That's how much I love to draw, paint and create art!
I am a Trinidad born, New York based, artist, illustrator, award-winning graphic designer, author, poet, reference librarian and tea drinker.
As a Caribbean-born woman, I Incorporate the essence of who I am into all of my work, by using shapes from cultural elements such as the steel pan, ocean, hummingbirds, butterflies and the beautiful flora and fauna of my native island Trinidad & Tobago.
Art is my passion and I share that in my award-winning book:
The Avocado Tree: An Immigrant’s Journey
My second book Creativity from Within is a workbook of inspirational poetry, quotations and tips that one can use as a platform for discovering and following their passion(s).
Helping clients to build their brand through brainstorming with them and experiencing their gratitude when their logo, flyer, newsletter
or art is done, gives me great joy. - Roxanne
