Robyn is a Melbourne based artist who studied life drawing and oil painting at the Victorian Artists’ Society prior to commencing formal studies at Victoria University (Visual Arts) and a Bachelor of Arts (Fine Art) (with Distinction), RMIT University. I am a Signatory Member of the Victorian Artists Society where I am a regular exhibitor in their selected exhibitions.
My work is developed from observations and drawings of nature and the urban environment. The materials of collage and mixed media allow me to edit my work through the process of layering.
Robyn is represented in private and corporate collections in Australia.
