Roy Vance, Richardson, TX Member Since May 2011 Artist Statement Roy E. Vance Richardson, TX
I was born in Ohio, raised in Florida and moved back to Cleveland where I received my Associate's degree in art. I currently live in Richardson, TX with my partner Chris and our loveable Maltese named Maxwell. I have been active in the home decorating / artistic field since 1992. While I received my degree in Art but never really pursued painting until 2005. It started as a hobby and took off from there!!! Since 2005 I have sold over 180 pieces through galleries, shows and commissions. I have been commissioned to create pieces for clients in Tampa, Cleveland and Dallas.
I enjoy painting and I find great reward in creating a special piece for someone based upon their design criteria (colors, size, budget). Depending on my mood (or my client's requests) I will add layers, textures and found objects for added visual interest. I like to try new techniques and experiment with different compositions. I believe that art, like life, is about learning, growing and sharing with each other. I hope you enjoy my art as much as I enjoyed creating it!
