I wear two hats with different names: Madison Woods when I’m wearing the artist hat, Roxann Riedel in real life and real estate. I'm a rock-smashing paint-making artist & a sales agent for Montgomery Whiteley Realty. Hailing from the wild Ozarks in Kingston, Arkansas where my husband and I work toward a sustainable lifestyle.

You can text or call to reach me by either name (see above):

Art Book | Soul of the Ozarks 2023

A while back I decided to make an art book to send to my collectors. They’re not big door-stopper books, just a catalog of the current art available, with some prose. Every year I’ll make one but will start with the new art since the first catalog. And I’ll put different articles in them. Depending on the feedback from this experiment, I might add longer or just more short essays in future books.

As I was doing the layout for my art book and adding the articles about my process, I began to think it might be a book worth listing at Amazon, too. Plus, I could sell a few copies at the studio. My life out here at Wild Ozark is a huge influence on my art, so there’s an endless amount of subject matter I can write about for future volumes. Likewise, there’s an endless amount of life and experiences that give me ideas for new paintings.

It’s taken a few weeks to get my order in, but they’re finally here and I love them. I hope you do, too!

How to Get One of my Art Books

There’s 3 ways:


If you’ve read any of my books and enjoyed them, please consider leaving me a review at Amazon. I hate asking for reviews, but it’s the grease for the wheels at places like Amazon. Otherwise, it’s very hard to get seen by anyone else who might like them.

My Other Books

As I was making this post, I realized I haven’t posted or talked much about the other books I’ve written over the years.

Aside from my new art book, there are some ginseng-related and plant information books, and also fiction. My fiction pseudonym is ‘Ima Erthwitch’, because I wanted to keep the fiction and non-fiction separate. There’s two of a three book series in the fiction category. It is taking me a long time to finish that series, so I’m not going to guess at a timeline for when the last book might be finished. But I intend to try and get it done sooner rather than later.

These are all available as Kindle or paperback:
