Digital Artist & Designer
Hi, I’m Roxy. I’m a South African digital artist (concept art and Illustration), and I’m also a qualified designer (graphic and web) with 20 years of experience. I also write a little bit.
Digital Art and Design Services
Graphic and Web Design
I’m a qualified graphic and website designer. I’ve been doing that since I graduated from the DSSA (Design School of Southern Africa) in 2001. In 2006, I decided to strike out on my own, so I formed Coza Web Design, which is my ‘day job’. I love my job and it pays the bills, but it’s not enough for my creative appetite.
Illustration and Concept Art
A rapidly growing portion of my work is digital illustration and concept art, mostly in the form of commissions, though I do this for pleasure as well. I also teach art skills on my YouTube channel and Patreon.
Other things that are greatly important to me
I’m a writer.
I’ve always had a love affair with books. In fact, one of my first jobs was in a bookstore. I started to write in late primary school, and since then I’ve always been writing something or the other: Creative pieces that I will never show anyone, design articles for one of my blogs, and of course non-fiction books.
My books are driven by an empathy I have for those suffering or lost in some sense. I’m not saying I’m some smart-arse guru with the answer to all of life’s questions. Hell no. I’ve got a lot to learn still, but what I have learned, I want to pass on. Isn’t that our duty? Each person’s journey through life, though unique, shares at least some of the same trials and tribulations that others have already, or will go through. Suffering is not pleasant, but I believe we find purpose in it by being able to later comfort others in the same predicament, after we’ve overcome our own. I also believe we are blessed by God in order to be a blessing to others. I believe God gives us true happiness when we live selflessly, rather than the pseudo-happiness we find in hedonistic selfishness. The way I obey that call of God on my life is to write.
Mind you, I’m not a professionally trained writer, so yes, you’re going to find spelling mistakes (that I lie and say are ‘typos’) and questionable grammar. I hope you will graciously look past that and simply enjoy what I’ve written, and take it for what it is.
I’m a Christian.
Not the judgy kind. Not the holier than though kind. Not the perfect kind. I’m just a flawed follower of Jesus trying to do the right thing, sometimes failing. I think Jesus is awesome, and it’s because of his example that I try to love people as much as I do. Any light and strength you see in me is Jesus shining through me. Without him, I would be a very broken and lost person.
I’m a wife.
I completely LOVE my husband. He’s handsome. He’s hilarious. He’s kind. If you want to see just how amazing he is, he’s also one of the highest viewed South African Twitch streamers. In the gaming world he’s known as Mr_W4RpATH. We both love PC gaming, so I often hang out on his stream in the evenings playing games too.
For only $5/month, you get a special Discord role which gives you weekly art lessons, patron-only videos (including 50+ previous lessons), a treasure trove containing all my products (brushes, etc), and a year’s worth of my high res paintings. Your name also appears as a credit on any YouTube videos I make while you’re a patron.
I’m available for Illustration commissions and contract work. I’m particularly keen to do bookcovers, card art, splash art, and fantasy portraits/avatars. Please email me about your project and I will respond promptly. I also accept commissions via Artistree or Patreon (on tiers 2 and 3).
