Roach, Dani

Dani Roach was born and raised in Wisconsin and received her BFA from the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee. Roach moved to Minneapolis in 1980 and was a member of WARM Gallery from 1983-1988. Roach has been granted artists' residencies at the Ragdale Foundation in Lake Forest, IL; the Millay Colony in Austerlitz, NY; and VCCA in Amherst, VA. In 2012, she was one of twelve artists invited to participate in the inaugural 12’12’12 project at the Minnesota State Fair. Other awards for Roach's work include a Jerome Foundation Travel/Study Grant, a Moebius Exceptional Achievement Award from the University of Wisconsin and a Purchase Award from the University of Minnesota. Concurrent with her artistic pursuits, Roach has worked in academic libraries for over 30 years. Roach has been represented by Groveland Gallery since 1984.

"For over 10 years, the subject matter for my work has often included imagery from “up north,” including the North Shore. Northern Wisconsin, where I grew up, Minnesota’s Arrowhead, Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, and many places in Canada have all served as sources for work from the last decade. Although my oils and watercolors have also featured contrasting scenes from my urban surroundings and travels, bodies of water and their surrounding landscapes are common themes.
