My name is Robin, and when I was a child, my mother gave me the nickname Robini (rhymes with Houdini). That nickname and a shortened form of my last name, Arthur, have combined to form the word “RobiniArt”, the name of my thriving animal portrait and abstract art businesses.

I currently live and work on the wild and rugged Western Slope of the Colorado Rockies in a tiny town called Paonia that is known for organic farming, wineries, hippies and a lively arts scene.

My portraits bring joy, happiness, beauty and vibrant color to customers across the United States and Mexico. Born and raised in Texas, I am influenced by Texas and Mexican style and believe that my work embodies the cultural shift happening in the United States. It is fresh, bright, beautiful, passionate and filled with the warmth and sunshine of Mexico, Texas and the American West. Typical design elements are flowers, ferns, butterflies, spiders, flower eyes and starry skies.

In 2019, as a brain break from the strict practice of custom portraiture, I started painting abstracts that are influenced by mid-century modern style and colors with a mix of my own aesthetic. The mid-mod design era has been a permanent fixture throughout my lifetime, starting with my grandparents’ mid-century, ranch-style home in Lindale, TX. My great uncle Jack “Babe” Wilson was one of the architect partners behind the iconic Ju-Nel Homes in Dallas, TX. My brother James was instrumental in the creation of Moonshine Shades, a custom lighting company with a focus on Atomic Age design. The mid-mod style is my comfort zone. Something about its clean lines calms me. My abstract paintings are the perfect icing on a mid-century modern cake. 

I earned a BFA in drawing and painting at the University of North Texas (UNT) in Denton, TX, studying with Vincent FalsettaRob ErdleAnnette LawrenceRobert Jessup and Ed Blackburn. I took most of my studio classes as a single mom, raising a daughter on my own and sometimes bringing her to class with me. Those are happy memories, to be sure, and even further imbedded my passion of weaving work with home.
