As a full-time artist I love to paint still life and landscapes in pastels and handmade Australian earth pastels as a self expression of the colours, shapes, lines and patterns.   As a retired doctor I know the powerful therapeutic effect of art on anxiety, depression, grief and dementia.  I completed a Diploma of Visual Arts over two years part-time at the Northbridge School of Visual Arts in 2005.  

I joined the Royal Art Society of NSW in 2006 as a student with Greg Hansell, one of Australia's best pastel artists.   Greg described my work as follows:  

"Robyn's unique personal vision has overtones of mid-century Northern European expressionism in her richly colourful translation of still life subjects".  

 At the annual Royal Art Society Student Exhibitions I have won two Commended, two Highly commended and one Encouragement Awards.  In 2017 I was admitted as an Exhibiting Member at the Royal Art Society of NSW.  Since joining the society I have been exhibited in each exhibition.  I am also a member of the Australian Society of Marine Artists.
