Roberta  is considered an “emerging artist” with a body of over 200 pieces sold or commissioned since she began her focus on Fine Art in 2005.  Roberta Ahrens is one of Northern California’s Master Decorative Painters & Fine Artists with 30 years experience in the application of classic and contemporary painted finishes throughout the San Francisco Bay Area.  She has extensive experience in painting large-scale murals combined with the practical knowledge of artistic applications acquired over a long career. This has led Roberta to develop a unique style of Fine Art painting in 2005.  She continues to develop and refine the technique of painting on hand-prepared canvases called "cracked linen". The results are truly breathtaking, adding a depth and presence to her floral subjects that makes them more of a mixed media sculputrual piece than paint on canvas or board.
