Romy Roeder

Romy Roeder creates wonderful things from her studio in the inspirational township of Lawson.
There are teddy bears and their pals, gollys vying for space with all the Christmas creations of snowmen, santas, angels and many others such gingerbread men and reindeer.

Romy has a very distinctive, unconventional style.
Some of her pieces have a folk art ethos. Others are of the altered art style.
She alters objects like old chairs and other common household items to become wild and wonderful decorative art.
Old cigar boxes become shrines to house snowmen or other unique collectables.
Old Cigarette tins become little pieces of art, when altered and containing tiny old treasures such as old dolls, keys, pocket watches etc.

Romy is particulary inspired by old birdcages which she finds are a  delight to alter. 

Romy's house is bursting at the seams with all the various creations and she finds it very hard to part with all her treasures.
It's a rare treat to be able to see and have the opportunity to purchase one of Romy's one-of-a-kind artworks.
