Roslyn Oakes lives and works from Murwillimbah, NSW.
She creates beautiful realistic works from her surroundings in the Northern Rivers and draws inspiration from the ethereal beauty that this landscape has to offer. After meeting Landscape Artist Andy Reimanis at the Caldera Art Gallery, and being offered the opportunity to be part of the "Green Cauldron Panorama", an 18 metre long painting depicting the 360 degree view from the summit of Wollumbin, Mt Warning, taking 12 months to create, her trajectory was set to produce more pieces of this calibre.
Roslyn uses pastels, acrylics and oils, sometimes all in one piece, to produce images of native Australian Flora and Fauna, and strikingly realistic natural wildlife.
Her work with Graeme Stevenson from "Colour In Your Life" in both teaching and fund-raising capacities has opened her work up to a greater Australian and International audience with television promotion of her work as an Australian artist to watch.
