About the Artist

Robin has always had a passion for creativity. In 1993, she received a degree in Engineering from ASU, and her love for creating new things soon branched off from engineering into art. She was enthralled by the idea that she could combine her technical and artistic skills by starting out with a blank sheet of paper, and ending with a markedly realistic 3D drawing.

The endless colors, textures, and shapes found in nature fascinates and inspires her. Robin’s goal is to keep improving as an artist while sharing the incredible beauty of nature with others.
