Originally from New York (born in Brooklyn), I moved to Chicago a few years ago by way of, New Jersy, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Charleston SC, Colorado, New Orleans, LA, and Southern France.
Creativity comes in all forms and in all types of stages. These works are just my way of expressing my love for color. I come from a creative, artistic lineage. My sister is an amazing, accomplished creator and artist (www.nadinerobbinsart.com), my brother is a super chef, my father was a collector and dabbler (always making something), my mom too was an artist.
In my day job, I went with something viewed as less "artistic"...
I am a Chemist, specifically organic chemist. (Although I think OC is an artistic science.) In my career as a scientist I have been an assistant professor, tutored OC full time, a research chemist for the USDA, and recently am trying my hand in an industrial setting due to my fondness for food, shelter, and an interest in professional growth. I work with colors in my day job and often describe colors as moving electrons. I can't get away from the artistic penchant. :)
I devote as much time as I can to my passions and play which include art, dance, and writing.
I have bartered, gifted, and sold my artwork over the course of my exploration. And I am in the process of setting up my Etsy Shop! My artwork is displayed in 15 states (e.g. NJ, MA, PA, FL, IL - Could your state be next? :) ). Drop me a note and tell me about a piece you like and why...
