Winter Offerings from Roxanne Evans Stout


Hello you wonderful friends and artists!

May you know peace and joy in this moment! It’s been a difficult year, and I miss seeing you at live art workshops, but we are finding so many new ways to connect online that it helps. I keep working away in my cozy River Garden Studio, and I am so excited about the different offerings I’ve created that I wanted to write and tell you about them. If you want more frequent updates, follow River Garden Studio on Facebook!

Both of my books are available on Amazon. Read the reviews and look through some pages!
Both of my books are available online! And they make amazing gifts for you or a loved one! You can explore pages of Storytelling with Collage and Dancing with Raindrops on Amazon! I created both with so much love, and it is a thrill to share them with you! My first book, Storytelling with Collage, is back in its third printing, and thanks to so many of you purchasing it, it is back on Amazon’s bestseller list too! It is packed with techniques, stories, step-by-step projects, photos, and amazing work and writing by guest artists! Each of the nine chapters focuses on collaging with a certain material, including paper, fabric, metal, and beyond! My second book, Dancing on Raindrops, beckons with photos I took of my artwork and of objects around me, from paintbrushes to flower petals to window panes. Musings along the pages encourage your creativity, honor connections, and help you see and experience life more fully.

My books make perfect gifts!
Speaking of gifts and projects I LOVE… Have you seen the newest way to enjoy my art?! Accessory bags with my art on them are now available through Art of Where! What will they help you organize?! Or will you take it to dinner and a show when we can do such things safely again? I would love it if you go see how beautiful (and durable!) these zipper pouches are. Check them out now if you like! There are eight bag designs with four size options and original art on both sides! The art on the back of the bags is different than the front, and the interior is denim-lined. This is a whole new world, and I am overjoyed to see my art on these gorgeous, durable carry-all accessory bags! Pictured are a few examples, but take a look at all of them here!

This amazing gallery sits along the creek in Southern Oregon, with sculpture gardens to explore and space for workshops!
