Originally from New York (born in Brooklyn), I moved to New Jersey a few years ago by way of Maryland, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Charleston SC, Colorado, New Orleans, LA and Southern France.
I come from a creative, artistic lineage. I have recently realized that creativity comes on all forms and in all types of stages. I guess I had just never thought about it in that way. My sister is am amazing 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. My nephews are creative as well... https://www.freelanced.com/jordanporkchoprobbins
I could go on with my family's artistic creative endeavors...
In my day job, I went with something viewed as less "artistic"....
I am a scientist, trained and employed as an 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 technical job as well. 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 and have designed greeting cards and prints of certain pieces. Last I counted my artwork is displayed in various settings in 14 differents states (e.g. Flanders & Hillsborough, NJ; Boston, MA, Pittsburg, PA, Vero Beach. FL - just to name a few).
I hope you enjoy some of the images in the gallery.
