Roxanne the Artist.....

In the next 6 days we will introduce you to one of our wonderful teachers daily, leading up to Camp Registration on August 21! I know- you can't wait can you?

The second teacher we would like you to meet is known for many things including painting lovely bird's nests.
Roxanne Spradlin

Artist ,Roxanne Spradlin, is a bit of a mess. When she was little she melted crayons on light bulbs and made lots of mud pies.Now as a grown-up girl she breaks dishes, draws on ceilings and paints on walls!
Inspired by creation,Roxanne is deeply moved by God's majesty as clearly displayed in nature. In the bloom of a rose,the architecture of a bird's nest and the develop of a butterfly, one can clearly see His invisible qualities- His eternal power and divine power and divine nature...(Romans1:18-20)God whispers His love through lavish beauty which is a favorite subject of this West Texas artist.
After 15 years of painting murals, domed ceilings and faux finishes in exquisite homes across the country. Roxanne has replaced scaffolding with an easel, where she enjoys painting with oils and acylics.With little training, she relies on God-given talent, divine inspiration and a 'eye'for beauty. At this time, her are is available exclusively at Red, in Fredricksburg,Texas. 
Roxanne earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Education from the University of Houston and is currently combining her love for creating with a passion to share by teaching beginning art classes to women in her community.The results have been fun and rewarding! Classes meet twice a month in her historic studio located in downtown Abilene.
Roxanne is married to high school boyfriend, Mike Spradlin, Head Football Coach/Athletic Coordinator at Abilene Cooper. They have three married children and 2 grandchildren. Both agree, life has never been sweeter!
