About

Science teacher turned artist.

There is so much to tell, where to begin? I spent the first 30 years of my life trying to "find" myself. I had many jobs, hair dresser, child care, bank IT, retail and more. It wasn't until I was 30 that I finally realized I love science, Biology to be specific. I decided to go back to school for a B.S. in Biology. I loved it and after graduation I found a job teaching high school science, it was the best job I ever had. I loved teaching and I loved my students. I figured I would be a teacher until I retired.
Then I got sick. I went to doctor after doctor and couldn't get a diagnosis. To this day I still don't have a diagnosis but it doesn't matter. The facts became clearer and clearer, I could no longer work full-time. I was devastated, I had finally found my career and it had been taken from me.
To be honest, depression was the prevailing emotion but little by little I began to realize that all along, my whole life, I had gotten joy form creating. I painted on canvas, I painted ceramics, I drew with pencil, pen, marker and charcoal. I tore down wall paper and sponge painted my livingroom. I pulled up carpet and put down laminate. I had been creating for as long as I could remember.
However, I had always been a frustrated artist, I could never make anything look realistic, I couldn't convey 3D, I certainly wasn't good even though I loved doing it. Then, one day, a friend told me about zentangle (www.zentangle.com) and opened up a whole new world for me. I saw beautiful works of art being created by people just like me. Art that wasn't confined by any rules, like perspective, but was art just for the sake of art. I began creating more and more detailed and complicated peices. I finally felt as though I had talent, I just needed to find MY style. My style is not realism, it's not perspective, it's not three dimensional, my style is black and white, one dimensional, graphic looking art and I love it.
I realized that this could become something I could share with others, hard and terrifying as that may be. So I finally opened my e-store and created a website (www.designzbyroe.weebly.com).
I now have originals for sale, as well as, prints, cards and soon, clothing and accessories, all available with my designs.
Of course, I still miss teaching but creating and sharing my art is as wonderful and satisfying as I could have ever hoped to be.
