Roxanne Quimby-Bio Photo_preview.jpg

Roxanne Quimby graduated from the San Francisco Art Institute in 1972 with a BFA and practiced studio art until moving to Maine in 1975. The experience of building a small cabin and living in the woods of Maine, as well as learning to heat with wood and to garden, created a life long commitment to a sustaining relationship with the outdoors and an appreciation of the beauty of nature.

From its origin in her kitchen to its leadership in the natural personal care market, Burt’s Bees exemplified her values of natural, earth-based ingredients and uncomplicated, recyclable packaging. Roxanne enthusiastically shares her business success with the many worthy non profit enterprises in Maine which continue her passion for the preservation of the natural world.
