About

Robyn is a mixed media artist working predominantly with textiles, acrylic and metallic thread. Based on Sydney's Lower North Shore, her work is part of private collections throughout Australia, Japan, Germany and the US.

My life as an artist started in 1992 when I rescued boxes of contemporary interior textiles that were destined for land fill. I couldn’t allow these exquisite materials to be buried; my mission, to ‘recycle’ them into some form of artistic expression. Giving new life to ‘retired’ textiles is at the core of my creative endeavours.

Every art work is individually crafted on watercolour paper or canvas. Textiles, organic materials, photographs and decorative papers are layered and intricately embellished with metallic and coloured threads, wire, beads and sequins.
