“Art and Soul by Canadian artist and writer, Roxsane Tiernan, is a reader’s journey of exploration. Roxsane takes us out of Canada to other parts of the world and brings us back again…with beautiful paintings, expanded insights and a reminder of the true Canadian spirit–one of adventure, self-reflection and a consolidation of experiences gained only by travelling beyond one’s own borders. Every picture is here, but not here…every poem is our past, present and future. Her book will remind you of your roots and renew your appreciation of life in Canada.”
– written by Sharon Yeadon, New West Retired Teacher’s Association.
Roxsane’s presentation will include a glimpse into her travels, an explanation of her artwork, her joy in fellowship and a response to any queries. She believes in global citizenship and the exquisite beauty of nature.
