Describing her style as "impressionistic expressionism", Robyn has no formal training in fine arts; rather she is a self-taught artist- her skills developed through experimentation, a bit of self-admitted stubborn perfectionism.. but also through keen observation of her surroundings and a love for all the hidden treasures in life.
Robyn jokes that her art's subject matter and style are somewhat eclectic because she "likes too many things to settle on just one". Although her paintings all differ, her works can still easily be recognized by their vivid colours and flowing brushstrokes.
It wasn't until she was expecting her first child that Robyn found her medium- she began working on pieces of art for the nursery, and chose acrylics. From that point on, acrylics were her go-to, although she does create works in many different medias from time to time.
Robyn took a break from art, but really dove back into it in early 2017. Since then, she has painted dozens of colourful works, several of which were featured at Felts Gallery in downtown Penticton in May of 2017, and now several more on display locally. She looks forward to continuing to put her work out there and becoming more recognized in her community.
"Long Island City"
Capturing a view from the Queensboro Plaza subway station in Queens, NY; just Southwest of Astoria on Long Island, this neighborhood is known as Long Island City- hence the name of the painting.
With the vibrant sounds and smells of Little Italy still present, this is a block northeast of the few remaining restaurants of the now vastly shrunken community- the brick and rod iron-decorated buildings of a bygone era flanking this iconic street.
"East 81st Dreamin' "
Three blocks southeast from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, this is #119, E81st Street in Manhattan- built in 1899.
A view from the corner of Mulberry Street and Houston Street in Manhattan, (a neighborhood known as Nolita) this is the Iconic Puck Building.
