Robin Williamson

Robin is an award-winning artist from Texas with the unusual distinction of having two degrees in engineering.  After a successful career in Information Technology, Robin "retired" to raise her three children, and while doing so, re-ignited a life-long love affair with art.  When her youngest child finally went off to kindergarten in 2006, Robin took her first formal oil-painting class and was hooked.  Since then, she has passionately pursued both education and easel time to continue to hone her craft.  Robin is a graduate of Johnnie Liliedahl's School of Classical Oil Painting, and has studied at Studio Incamminati, Scottsdale Artist's School, and The Ryder Studio.

 

Robin's desire is to glorify her Creator by reproducing the beauty of the life around her.  Her first love is painting people, because she considers that the most exquisite of all of God's creations.  She particularly enjoys painting dancers because it combines her love of painting the figure and her love of dance.  Robin is also a musician and singer, and for this reason, finds inspiration in the works of Leonardo Da Vinci, an engineer, artist, and musician.  Robin paints from life every chance she can get, and enjoys sharing her craft with others by teaching a portrait class every week. Robin is a member of the Portrait Society of America, the National Oil and Acrylic Painter's Society, Oil Painter's of America, American Women Artists, and the Art League of Fort Bend.
