About Me

                     I'M ROXANA SINEX

When I asked my mother how old I was when I started to draw, she told me, "Roxy, you were drawing before you could talk". No wonder that I had been drawing as long as I could  remember! My Grandmother taught me to paint when I was 10 and when I passed 5th grade after a long illness, she gave me my first set of oil paints. 

Years later, as I was getting ready for college, I decided on architecture as a career because it would allow me to earn a living by drawing, my love and passion. In 1989, I founded Sinex Design Architects, specializing in custom homes and remodeling. 

Along with my career as an architect, I continued to paint and in 2006, I began to share my knowledge and experience by teaching oil painting to others. This allowed me a smooth transition to becoming the full-time artist that I am today.


My father was a lover of hiking in the wilderness. It relieved him from the stress and concerns of his job and rejuvenated his spirit, bringing joy into his life. He shared this passion with my mother, my sisters and myself and now I too strive to pass on the peace and inner renewal that I find in the mountains and forest trails.  I do this through my paintings, on canvas or boards which I sometimes mount in old window sashes, all creating frameworks to communicate the feeling of being outside among the trees and forest life. The window sashes enable me to go beyond the surface of the panel utilizing paper, wire, clay and whatever else suits my needs in order to express the idea in my mind. I want to reach out to the viewers and draw them into my paintings, to feel the breeze, smell the flowers, to experience the renewing energy of the forest. 


 My paintings start with remembered hikes and wilderness explorations. I carry my camera with me to quickly capture images that catch my attention using them later as detailed references for the realism that I find so fascinating. Returning to my studio, I bring my scattered ideas together in sketches, forming them into a coherent theme and composition. When working on one of my “Window Paintings”, I also plan which elements I want to express dimensionally and how I will accomplish this in order to make the whole scene more “real”. I feel that I have accomplished my goal when I overhear viewers of my work exclaim, “I’ve never seen anything like this before! It looks so real. I love it!” Their smiles tell me that I have achieved my goal.   

career highlights

More important to me than awards and notoriety is when I am able to create a positive impact on someone's life, whether it is helping them relax, smile or even cry. That last one might sound strange but when I won an award for a painting describing the experience of throwing my father's ashes off a mountain peak with my sisters and I saw tears in the eyes of people in the crowd, I knew I had touched their hearts.

I also feel success when one of my students wins their first award or sells their first painting. Making people feel positive emotions through art is what makes a career successful to me, whether is is my through my paintings or those of my students.
