Hello! Welcome to my design website! My name is Roxanne, but I go by my nickname Roxy. I'm a wife and mom to three boys. My oldest son is in the U.S. Air Force, my middle son is in college studying Computer Science, and my youngest is still in elementary school. I also have two granddaughters.
I love to design, draw, sew, craft and so much more! I have always wanted to pursue a creative career. After having my first son at the age of 18, I entered into a faster track of education and studied computer accounting at a local technical school so I could begin working as soon as possible. After graduating with my certification, I began working in the corporate world in administrative roles for places such as United Express, Pelco, KMPH Fox 26, and a short-term move to Tennessee working at the Tennessee Titans.
In 2009, I began my creative career journey by opening up my first business and fashion label, Righteous Couture, and registered the label with the FTC (RN137091). For 5 years I was designing and sewing children's clothing for special events and everyday wear. I worked with photographers and model mommies all over the U.S. to develop my product line. I sold my products online through Etsy and in some local boutique stores. I also taught basic sewing skills at local sewing centers and offered classes in my home.
In an effort to grow my skills in the graphic design and surface design areas, I knew that I would have to step back from Righteous Couture and begin taking classes. I enrolled in Skillshare classes to learn more about the Adobe programs as a first step.
In 2014, I opened up Roxy Benton Designs, and the RBD online store on Etsy, offering stationery items & paper goods for weddings and personal use. Once I began doing so, the graphic design portion grew at a rapid pace. I finally pursued more education in design and I enrolled at the New York Institute of Art and Design (NYIAD) and recently finished the program.
You will still find me sewing up some of those adorable outfits but on much smaller scale than before. For now, I love drawing, painting, illustrations, pattern making (and still sewing!). I am excited about the future of my creative career and my portfolio is growing all the time. Thank you for stopping by and getting to know a little about me and the journey to what has become Roxy Benton Designs.
