Hi! I’m Roxy!

Good day dear visitor! My real name is Roxana but I’ve been called Roxy since I was a baby by everyone: my parents, brothers, cousins… al my family. But also by my teachers and friends! That’s the reason when I had to choose an artist name, I already got one perfect for me <3

I am an animal lover collaborating with 6 animal shelters in my town. I only have a dog at the moment and a lovebird, but I did brought some a few kittens to be rescued. My ideal is to earn enough money to get more involved in the animal shelters at least here in my town: visiting them, helping out with anything they need like walking the dogs or taking the animals to the vet. I hope someday I can volunteer that way!

I also love nature and I would love to travel a little bit more. But not to see cities… I want to travel with my boyfriend and my dog and see awesome natural places!

I am also very passionate about art. and I don’t just mean: oh I love drawing, I will just draw a little bit. No… art to me is essential thing in my life. I’m 90% of my time in the mood to draw, and when I’m not it’s probably because I’m feeling sick and I physically can’t do it!

Art is a very important part of my life. It’s my purpose, and it was quite clear since I was 2 years old. The problem was, my parents, my family, they didn’t see it. They just thought I was drawing to see the time pass and nothing else.

I was guided to study science, so at age 16 I kind of had to stop drawing. Stopping my drawing was… not possitive to me. I started to get problems with anxiety and depression. Drawing was the one and only thing I could do to keep me happy.

Now after 8 years studying programming and working as a programmer, which I hated, depression stroke even harder and my therapist told me I should embrace who I am, now that I am an adult and no longer depend on my parents. And I did.

I left my job and became an artist in May 1st 2019.

I’m writing this 1 year later. I’m still a freelance artist, so I’m basically a business woman, I work full time and try my best to make a decent schedule for me because if it was for me I would just work from the morning to the late night.

I am truly happy to have achieved my goal, to have beaten depress although I still have to work on my social anxiety a bit. But everything comes at it’s time.

Thank you very much for reading and supporting me so far!
