Medium: Acrylic, Collage, Drawing, Mixed Media, Murals, Painting, Plein Air, and Sculpture
Robin works primarily with paint, specializing in figurative studio painting, mixed media collage, and vintage style hand lettered signs. A large portion of her work is commissioned pieces for individual’s homes or businesses. She has shown her work in local galleries, art shows, and fairs, painted murals in Loomis, Penryn and Auburn, and performed live-painting at local churches and events.
Her diverse work echoes her origins, growing up in the 80’s in her family’s sign business and small farm. Having been exposed to the work of sign-making masters since childhood, she developed an instinct for balanced composition. Throughout her work there are strong elements of classic design, whether it be a mural or a small, intimate piece.
In a way, Robin’s art reflects her own story. Her experience of being liberated from an extreme religion is expressed on canvas with themes of transformation found by nature. Her inspiration often comes from the wonders of creation. While creating is medicine to her own soul, it’s also the way she gives back to the world. Since 2012, when she really began to dedicate herself to her art, she’s made pieces for charity fundraisers, taught art to all ages, and studied for a year at Sierra College in the applied arts department.
Besides painting, Robin loves to create 3D art. She has created elaborate costumes and set pieces for theater productions, as well as unique mixed media sculptures.
In 2018 she was selected as one of the artists for the “Off The Rails” public art project for the City of Rocklin. Her mining cart “Rooted in Rocklin” can be seen in Rocklin’s Quarry District.
Robin’s mixed media sculpture, “BeeThoven”, was awarded both the Viewer’s Choice and Best of Show awards at High Hand Gallery’s 2018 Steampunk Art Show.
Robin’s work as an artist continues to evolve, and her focus is always on enjoying and accepting the process. When Robin’s not working on an art project, she’s probably spending time with her two daughters and their ‘doodle dog, riding her horse, or catching up on projects around her home.
