RORO ARTWORKS Fine Art Greeting Cards by California Artists


There are not enough hours in a day to paint all that inspires me.  I feel very lucky to be a woman artist living in Ventura, California, with my husband and two kids.  My painting style is poetic realism, because I am inspired by the visual world around me.  Ventura is a little piece of heaven, with the island views, the natural beach and local scenes.   I try to capture that beauty on canvas or paper.   Currently I am working on a series of beach related scenes.  Since my family and I are at the beach every weekend, playing, surfing or just walking, this was just a natural subject matter.  I try to get the viewer to see their everyday surroundings with new eyes.  One painting leads to another.   My painting technique is very traditional, starting with a under painting, value study, with thick over thin paint, working dark to light.  I try to capture freshness and simplicity and luminosity in my paintings.   I would like to add I am still learning and when I look at other artists work that I admire, I realize I have a  long road ahead .  I welcome any questions and can be reached at my studio.   (805) 644-6088.
