Life is about layers . . . what we see on the surface is often a brief glimpse into what is underneath. I have always been interested in going deeper, understanding people and their complexities. Clay mono-printing has a unique style which integrates texture, color, depth and design. In my work I add layer upon layer of colored clay onto a flat slab of clay incorporating a variety of techniques. Once I have a design and composition that says something to me I pull a print and peel away a layer and then another layer. To my delight, there is always something new and unexpected that is revealed. If you look closely at my work, whether a clay monoprint or a mixed media piece, you will see the top layer and slowly other layers emerge – just like getting to know someone over time. There is also a playfulness to my art– a freedom, spontaneity and trust in the process.
Since the age of three, Robin has been developing her artistic abilities. She attended classes at the Art Student’s League in New York City during the 70’s, studying figure drawing, composition, color theory and water color. A long hiatus from fine art (but staying creative with jewelry making, quilting, knitting and upcycling furniture) . . . she developed a career as a Psychologist and Couple’s Therapist, raised and launched her two children. She studied for 8 years with Mitch Lyons learning the art of clay monoprinting. She opened her studio at Heron Crest Studios in Aston, PA in 2015. Since then she has shown her work at The Googleworks, Delaware County Studio Tours, Art Along the Creek at Heron Crest Studios, Bellefonte Arts in Wilmington DE and recently won an Honorable Mention Award for her work at Beauty Arts Gallery in Newtown Square, PA. Her recent work stays true to her aesthetic and has expanded into acrylic and mixed media.
“I love the freedom I have when working with a variety of materials, designing abstract works with subtle color variations, reflective moods and a bit of whimsy”.
