About the Speaker

Rox Corbett

Rox Corbett is an award-winning charcoal artist who makes representational drawings, mostly of animals. Her pictures are detailed and textural, somewhat abstract in composition, and full of shadows and light. An important aspect of her work is conveying the behavior or spirit of the animals she depicts, sometimes in humorous ways.

Her exhibitions include the Quest for the West at the Eiteljorg Museum in Indianapolis, Western Visions at the National Museum of Wildlife Art, the Buffalo Bill Art Show, and Sale at the Center of the West in Cody, and the Cowgirl Up Art Show at Desert Caballeros Western Museum in Wickenburg, AZ. She has also exhibited at galleries and museum shows in Montana, Wyoming, Arizona, Texas, and Quebec.

Rox received a BFA degree from Concordia University, Montreal. She lives on a ranch on the Clark’s Fork of the Yellowstone with her Dutch Shepherd, Echo, her 33-year-old horse, and a lot of grizzlies.
