- ROXANE RECOMMENDS: The Saturday Art Quilting Salon, Take 2
- 2 PIECES IN FREEZE FRAME, at the Page-Walker
Welcome to my new studio!
It even has a lime green desk! You can see I’ve already set up my trusty Bernina 1530. It goes where I go.
There was nothing wrong with my old studio, except it was in my house, taking up too much room. Also, it was too easy to be distracted. I hope to be more productive now.
Dyeing classes will take place downstairs near the sink! Since I share the building with the fabulous Marina Bosetti, I feel like a “real” artist now….big smile here.
DYEING IN CUPS: Take 2
I borrowed this lesson from Nina Marie Sayre , who has a fabulous blog.
We had so much fun, I am doing it again this month for those who couldn’t make it and wanted to. So read below if you would like to dye your own gorgeous fabric.

And don’t forget, I make custom commissions too! Read what my client Glenda had to say about her custom commission experience:
“Normally, I would be anxious about commissioning someone to do a work of art such as this. However, I felt a connection to you when Leigh showed me your work. It resonated with me and when I met you, you seemed almost a personification of your work. I immediately felt comfortable with you and knew that what you would create would be stunning. And it is!”
Roxane is a full time studio textile artist and teacher with two girls and 1 fat cat. She is a 2012 Niche Award Winner and exhibits her work all over the world. Roxane enjoys traveling, knitting and most of all working with students who want to create their own fiber art, and not simply make other people’s patterns. Her work is in several private collections and loves doing custom commissions.
If you and a small group of folks want a more private instruction experience, call me. We can work out a studio workshop in my studio. Just drop me an email: email@example.com
