The Artist Says:


I have a passion to paint and a calling from God to pursue my passion.




Biography


Capturing the beauty of God's creation.
 
Painting is relaxing and is my way to get with God and His creation. I want to soak it in, understand it as well as I can, and then capture the special beauty of life as light and shadow splash across the scene. I love being outside and interacting with others and I really enjoy plein air painting. Nature never fails to reward and challenge me as an artist with its constantly changing colors, light, and atmosphere. I also enjoy working in my studio in Ashland, Ohio when I can not get outside. 
 
Robin graduated from Ashland (College) University in 1982 with a Bachelor of Science in Visual Communication after spending one year of intensive study at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh. After years of work at agencies and as the head of graphics at Rubbermaid in Wooster, Ohio, Robin opened Red Red Design, a graphic design studio in Ashland, Ohio in 2001.
