Robin has lived in Texas since birth and has been painting since she was a young girl. “I took every art and drawing class I could fit into my schedule. My high school drafting teacher convinced me I’d never make a living in the art field, so I chose to study mechanical drafting in college instead of art.” After many years of working in the engineering field, then teaching, and even stand-up comedy, she has turned her creativity into an art career now spanning 25 years.
Robin’s paintings are primarily representational. Her subjects include landscapes, animals, and botanical themes. Currently, she’s working on the series Trees and Their Seasonal Wardrobes which includes images of oaks, aspens, and close-ups of their foliage in various seasons. She’s also working on a new landscape series.
“My personality is straightforward and happy, so most of my painting reflects that as well. Although most of my pieces are representational, I enjoy incorporating a bit of an abstract slant, bold colors, or a sense of amusement into my paintings. My favorite mediums are watercolor, transparent acrylic, and collage. I’m captivated by the movement of the paint and the depth and texture collage adds to the surface. Although most of my work has an organic feel to it, I enjoy the freedom to experiment with different subjects, mediums, and styles. This painting approach not only keeps me on the creative edge, but allows me to offer a variety of artwork to perspective clients.”
