Biography


Robin Williamson is an award-winning artist living and working in Texas.  She is best known for her refined, delicate, and realistic style of painting in oils.  After a successful career in Information Technology, Robin "retired" to raise her three children. While doing so, she re-ignited a life-long love affair with art and took her first formal oil-painting classes.  She was hooked.  Since then, she has fervently pursued both education and easel time to continue to hone her skills.  She is passionate about art education and has studied with some of today’s leading figurative artists such as Max Ginsberg, Anthony Ryder, Robert  Liberace, Joshua LaRock, and Jordan Sokol.   She is a graduate of Johnnie Liliedahl's School of Classical Oil Painting, and has studied at Studio Incamminati, Scottsdale Artist's School, The Ryder Studio, and The Coppini Academy.  She also holds Bachelor's and Master's degrees from Texas A&M University and Southern Methodist University.
