About Roberta

Roberta Combs uses vibrant color, extreme lighting, and dramatic composition to portray her realistic subject matter. Her still life paintings create an intimate view of her subject matter. Her portraits evoke personal emotion from their viewers. “I love the rich, buttery texture and the clean velvet color of pastels. They allow simple scenes and common items to be transformed with beautiful light and delicious drama."
