"I look back on my high school and college notes and realize that I was always drawing, art was always there, even when the topic was chemistry. I even drew pictures in my poetry books. With me, everything has a visual representation," he said.
Roosevelt and his wife Midge have lived in Cherry Hills Village for 59 years, where they raised their four children. Always committed to the community, Roosevelt has served on City Council and as police commissioner. In 1980 he took up "outdoor painting from nature," or plein air oil painting.
