Featuring The Fine Art Of Roxy Riou

I have never as yet had the pleasure of meeting Roxy Riou in person, but I have certainly met her online. To converse with, she is witty, passionate about life, kind, generous, and above all, she is one of the most humble artists one is likely to meet. Constantly questioning her abilities she furthers her own quest to present new and exiting artworks, and rather like a seeker of truth, her art speaks far more of her talents than she could do so for herself.

Roxy Riou specializes in many art forms and media, and is extremely well hearsed in freehand digital painting.

In her own words she says Always an Artist at heart, I was raised in Greenwich Village, certainly when it was the Bohemian center of New York City.

It is my pleasure to feature such a wonderfully versatile artist such as Scott Hovind.

Although known for his photography, Scott Hovind is not averse to bringing to the viewer a wide range of artistic styles that are sure to please many an art collector.

I have had many ideas as to how to promote both my own art and the art of friends, but Scott Hovind has outdone may of the best.

Fantastic, brilliant and well worth a look at the beautiful art Scott is showing on his blog. An excellent artist in his own right, he has kindly and innovatively dedicated a lot of his time to promoting others.

Great work, Scott!
