My works are highly detailed and strong in colour and depth, reflecting the "dreaming" the connection I have with the outback, where I have lived for most of my life and the ocean where I was raised.

"Art is my passion, my love, my life, like breathing it is my life force".

Together with music, painting is the creative force that brings peace to my day.

My works are highly detailed and strong in colour and depth, reflecting the "dreaming" the connection I have with the outback, where I have lived for most of my life and the ocean where I was raised.

I paint the beauty which is reflected in the landscape, that which excites me. I do not feel the need to portray any other as there are enough reminders of the negative side of the world.

I paint for myself; I do not mass produce or paint for the public. That my paintings are widely sought after is a reflection of the self that goes into all my works. It gives me a buzz to know that my buyers and collectors also get great pleasure from my works.

Paintings are "finished" when they are. I am not complacent in the judgement of my work; I always strive to make the next painting "better" than the one before."

Roxanne Minchin arrived at the Family Hotel on 19th July 2011 to show a friend from Sydney her old painting grounds. Much to the delight of Dan and Kathy Roxanne accepted their invitation to add to the Family's collection of murals and keeping with the Family tradition being wife of the late husband Eric Minchin and his cousin Clifton Pugh.

Roxanne has chosen her part of the wall and is in the process of painting The Dingo Fence which is becoming one of her favourite subjects and loves with such passion. Roxanne return to The Family after spending a week with her daughter and grandchildren in Adelaide for the next 2 weeks Roxanne has transformed her wall and will be returning to Tibooburra mid-September to complete her masterpiece.

Prints and postcards of Roxanne's works are available for sale from the bar.
