ARTIST Roxanne Fulkerson
Art is a compulsion.
Art is a compulsion. It yearns from the inside, seeking a release. The colors of the sky, autumnal leaves, the music of a stream all call to it, striving to bring it into existence. The process can be painful, shaping this consuming yen as it emerges, but the results speak for themselves.
The abstract form is particularly appealing, because it invites the viewer to become a part of the art, filling in the blanks with his or her own experiences, initiatives, and dreams. The art you find here owes inspiration to many great artists, such as Monet, van Gouh, and Gerhard Richter, and yet it will be unlike the work of these great creators as well. The passion sparks the flame, craft and discipline shape it, and you are invited to warm your hands, as I have, by the fire.
Roxanne is a San Diego native and has been painting, writing, and creating for as long as she can remember. Primarily self- taught she has studied with such local talents as Drew Bandish, Olya Losina and Chuck McPherson.
