Meet Roberta Hancock
Born in Dayton, Ohio, in 1958, Roberta Hancock has resided in Phoenix, Arizona, since early childhood. As a fine artist and illustrator, her colorful palette reflects the strong influence of the Southwestern and Mexican-American cultures.
Ms. Hancock has extensive professional experience in the fields of commercial art and advertising. After 12 years in the Graphic Art Industry, she has enjoyed another 15 years illustrating for numerous local and national publications. During this time, she has also pursued her fine art career.
Roberta creates her dramatic imagery in both oils and pastels. A reflective and wry humor is usually evident in her vibrant work. Using exaggerated perspective and raking shadows, absurdity often collides headlong with mediocrity wherein the common place marries the bizarre. There remains, however, a sense of familiarity, a bold simplicity that draws so many people to her work.
