I am fascinated by dots and circles, perhaps because they don't have beginnings or ends. As a self-taught artist, I began using this painting technique to bring calmness into my busy and stressful life and quickly discovered the immense positive impact it had. I wanted to share its benefits with others, particularly those with no background in drawing and painting, and decided to develop dot painting workshops. This decision has been profoundly rewarding. Witnessing the imagination and vision of participants come to life continues to provide inspiration, and I look forward to continuing on this journey!

"I was able to let go of my worries of the day as I focused on the colours and design of my mandala and proved to myself that I too could be creative."

"I am recovering from a concussion. Part of my healing strategy has been to find mindful, peaceful activities. I was very grateful to have participated in two of Roxana's Dot Painting workshops. She is an exceptional teacher. She has a special gift of making everyone in the class feel encouraged and positive about their little works of art. Roxana provided the class with just the right amount of feedback, direction and modeling. She helped us tap into our creativity and celebrated the unique way we approached the art. Roxana gave me tools and confidence to be able to mindfully continue with dot painting at home. This is a great activity for my healing brain! I look forward to taking more workshops with Roxana."

It was a pleasure working with Roxana as we navigated online teaching for the older adult members of our centre. Roxana brought unique and interesting ideas to the group as they continued to learn the technique of dot painting on a new canvas each week! The slides and videos were extremely well done and easy to follow. Roxana was able to speak to each slide and help the participants with their projects and inspire them at the same time. Roxana was very engaging and provided a relaxing and safe environment to share. Roxana is a true artist and we look forward to having her back to the centr “ in person” one day soon! On behalf of all the participants and myself, thank you for the joy and happiness you brought to us each week! Especially during this time!
