Biography


Bio:
 
Born in south Florida, Robin has always had a love for sunshine and palm trees. Encouraged by a creative family, her love of art started as soon as she could hold a brush. She spent a short time at Ringling School of Art and Design in Sarasota, FL, and earned a certificate as a cabinetmaker from Pinellas Technical College in Clearwater, FL. Combining her love for painting and for woodworking has been a challenge until recently when she began to cradle her paintings in wooden boxes. Now Robin has a painting studio and a woodworking studio on the thirteen acres in north Florida she shares with her husband. Their three grown children live with their families in three different directions of the compass. 
 
Artists Statement:
 
I choose nature as my subject because of its rhythms. The slow, steady movement of living things inspires me to patiently pay attention. I am most impressed with trees because of their shapes and meaning in literature. The wood itself can be beautiful as well as containing the vibrations of music. Many times I use fragments of musical instruments because of the tones the wood has absorbed during its life. Other items are from past industrial uses. They retain a connection to a slower time in our history. Previously abandoned, these items are infused with new life in the art-making process and act as a reminder of that history.
The use of a box or vessel captures a moment and can tell a story. Often viewers create their own story while experiencing the artwork. It's the surprise of the unexpected that makes me want to continue to create these pieces.
