Roxana works in pencil, pen and ink, mixed media and acrylic on canvas. Born and raised in the mountains of western Montana, she has a B.A. in art and elementary education from the University of Montana. Her concern for our environment and its wildlife has led to her specialization in animals, both wild and domestic. Roxana’s work is in the collection of former President George W. Bush. He has the first of a limited edition of her lion print, “The King at Home."
Rami is a graduate of the University of Washington, the state where she was born and raised. She has taught drawing and design classes, batik and tie-dye workshops and ceramics. She is currently active in a plein air group that paints on a weekly basis. Her favorite mediums are pastels, oils, acrylics and watercolors.
New Gallery Artist
Ray began painting about four years ago. He is basically self-taught, having only taken some instruction from local artists. Ray comments: “I have always had a keen sense of observation and a strong sense of my surroundings. I enjoy painting what I see and feel. I particularly enjoy painting people because their faces usually tell what is going on in their lives. I also enjoy landscapes for their depth, color and light. I feel my paintings are a reflections of who I am and the world I live in. I find pleasure in sharing them.” Ponteri’s work has been shown at Mas Art Frame and Art Supplies, M. Philip’s Fine Art Gallery, Picacho Hills Country Club, Cafe de Mesilla and Le Rendez-vous Cafe.
In addition, the gallery artists offer art in many media, which include:
original paintings, photography, jewelry, ceramics, fabric collage,
stained glass and gourds, as well as affordable note cards and prints.
