Roxanne Jervis is an artist and teacher who is over-whelmed by the beauty in the landscape that surrounds us. Her style is her own, and can be recognized by the strong colours and composition, usually painted with a palette knife.
Travelling whenever possible, to places far and near, in order to paint, photograph and/or sketch; allows Roxanne to use the medium that inspires her. Returning home, the energy from her trips is reflected in her work. A large selection is done “Plein Air”, mostly on Manitoulin Island and the London, Canada areas. However, she has a series from Tuscany/Italy, Hong Kong, West Cornwall/England, Normandy/Brittany in France, and Western Canada.
Studies were at the University of Waterloo, Doon School of Fine Art and with several professional artists. Currently, she is teaching Pencil Art, Painting Classes and One-Day Workshops through the Spectrum programs for the City of London.
Over the years there have been several solo exhibits. Roxanne is a member of four Artist Guilds, and is currently exhibiting in group shows and galleries. Davis Canadian Art in Stratford has represented her since 1997. The McMichael Canadian Collection in Kleinburg, Ontario has exhibited her work twice.
