Robyn has always been fascinated by colour, texture, design and fabrics. She started early on with batik and progressed to weaving and fabric art during her college degree in Textiles and Design. As a teacher Robyn continued this discovery and promotion of textile arts. She is now working in silk, oils and water colours as well as mixed media or fabric art.
Robyn is inspired by beautiful shapes and rich colours in the landscape. Working with paint, dyes and fabric excites her. She loves the sometimes unexpected results achieved with dyes on silk.
Robyn is a colourist and enjoy using complementary colours to create a vivid contrast in my landscapes. She likes to start with an image and let the colours create the story or mood.
Robyn has been inspired by the amazing landscapes she explored in her trip around Australia. The verdant green rain forests of Tasmania, the lush tropical rivers of Kakadu and the big wide landscapes of the red centre are featured in many paintings. The beautiful rivers, mountains and beaches of her local valley are also featured.
Robyn lives in Crescent Head NSW on a bush block surrounded by the beauty of the Macleay Valley – a continuing inspiration and subject for her work
Robyn is now enjoying the life of a full time artist exhibiting regularly, holding classes and workshops with the occasional market thrown in.
