A Creative Art STUDIO - Artists
Robin is an artist and craftsperson devoted to creating art that is both functional and beautiful and believes that art is anything that expresses the emotion or beauty of life. She is passionate about glass, and has been working with anything “glass” for about 30 years. Her introduction to glass began with an apprenticeship at a stained glass studio in Denton where she learned the basics of working with stained glass and also has studied enameling at University of North Texas under Harlan Butt. She has taught stained glass classes in both Tiffany and Leaded stained glass, fused glass and glass mosaics through mini courses at University of North Texas. Inspired by the beauty of nature and the symbolism involved in the Celtic culture, those themes are present in many of her creations. Her goal is simply to create a piece of art that she enjoys and hope that others will enjoy as well. Recently beginning the journey of working with canvas and paint, Robin comments that her philosophy of art has changed somewhat since she began painting. “While I have always looked at stained glass as a very precise, exact art, painting is a medium which is very liberating. It will be interesting to see how this liberating feeling affects my glasswork and how the two mediums can be combined.” Opening the studio on Oak street has been a life long dream and an opportunity to have an art community. Moving her home business Glass Garden Studio to a more public venue is a positive change. “Sometimes art can be a solitary career and the new studio setting provides the opportunity to meet with other artists and share ideas, techniques and the love for art.”
The Process is just as important as the final project.
