First Post

I am trained as a metalsmith and a sculptor but drawing was the first art I ever did and it has always been a big part of what I do as an artist.
Its only since I moved to the Low Country that I have felt motivated to carry my drawings through to a highly finished state. The area around here has so many beautiful and picturesque views it has become a principal inspiration and pencil seems the best outlet for that right now.
The image above is a composite done from a number of reference photos of live oak in the area. Live oak are wonderful subjects for drawing with all the detail they have and will be a subject I will return to frequently.


  1. Robin, you are such a talented artist! Your drawings are wonderful, as was your metal work when you did that.
    Good luck with the graphite work and the blog! :-)
    I can't wait to see more.
