Rosco portrait
Rosco portrait

This was my older brothers' dog Rosco who was his travel buddy through truck driving, house-flipping, a big move to Mexico and then the house guard dog. He lived life well! Sadly he crossed over the rainbow bridge in Feb. 2021 suddenly and my brother was devastated. This portrait now hangs inside his new home:)

My original work consists of a wide variety of mediums, subject matters and musings so I had to separate them by medium and by theme! I hope you enjoy browsing my many galleries!! There is much to see, and I'm always adding more like a full 70 square foot cardboard castle I built over the spring and summer of 2021. MORE on that soon!!

I don't currently have an online shop due to the amount of maintenance it requires and quite honestly, I'd prefer to simply have a chat online or meet in person or through video conferencing. 

My Marketing Coordinator Diploma Program through The Academy of Learning Career College. is NOW complete and I have my third diploma with distinction. AND a massive amount of new knowledge that I've been putting to VERY good use wherever I can. Most importantly, I now have a new paid role with the Okotoks Arts Council as their Arts Initiative Coordinator. With this role, I get to research and reach out to local arts-based organizations and businesses of the foothills region in order to create a newsletter! Super fun! 

I teamed up with one Canadian-run, international online platform through Art in Canada for marketing to international collectors, both of which invited me to join their cause:) ALL of my original art is collected on this page, so there you go! Happy scrolling!!! There's a lot to see and side note: ALL of it is child, teen and geek friendly:) If you're interested in purchasing a piece, or maybe commissioning a portrait or mural just pop me a note here or you can "Chat with Miss Robin" too! I'd love to hear from you or see your note pop up on my phone:)

Buyers! Watch for this Authenticity Stamp on any Original Art, purchased directly from me or commissioned or consigned.  Full sized reproductions only come in the form of  greeting cards or maybe some fun t-shirts. So you can rest assured you will own an original work of art AND you will know that you have a small piece of me within your grasp:)

Sheep River Forest Mural - 2022
Sheep River Forest Mural - 2022

This wall mural measures 280 square feet. 10 feet tall and 28 feet long... It was painted on a concrete wall with false brick sections at the Okotoks Arts & Learning Campus inside the AECON Early Learning Centre. Young children have been enjoying playing and learning there since it's completion in May 2022. If you are standing close to it - you can spot the names of the youth painters that were invited to help me paint in some of the animal elements.

February 2021 The local independent cinemas really needed a boost to get their new seat fundraiser going...so I approached their manager a number of times. They just didn't have the funds to pay for a promotion... So I offered to paint for popcorn! The funds are rolling in but they still need your support! Check out the link to see how you can help:)

Using discarded DVD cases, I carved out the circular shape and replaced it with heavy cardboard. Using discarded textured wallpaper, I replaced the movie cover. Inside the case I fit brushes, pencils or pens inside to go along with miniature sketchbooks, notebooks or activity booklets I made 38 of them, and have sold about 15 so far. $15.00 only

In the following 13 pieces, you will see artwork inspired by the ancient belief systems of the British Isles. Lunar Astrology was deeply rooted in varying societies, so to keep it understandable, I've tagged it as 'Celtic Astrology'. I invite you to take a look at how the ancients would have described your birth chart character.
