Roann Mathias Artwork at the Scribe Store

Roann Mathias artwork will be at the Scribe Store.

These pieces were inspired by Roann’s recent graduate degree in fine art.  She spent a lot of time exploring various media, including acrylics and different kinds of paper.  At first she was very conservative in her use of color, but as the program progressed, she found the freedom to return to her usual vibrant color palette.  Some of the more textured pieces were a direct result of her final thesis project, in which she used different acrylic media to create transparent letterforms.

The sizes range from 8″ x 10″ to 11″ x 14″.
