CV

CV  ~Margot Roi  Abstract Painter~ Oakville, Ontario, Canada

Margot Roi Art: I paint abstracted conversations on canvas to inspire and make connections; one intimate layer at a time. I create in planned thematic collections based on specific emotional concepts that join common threads of expressive reflection.
