Hi, I'm Robyn from Indianapolis, Indiana. Looks like I'm the New Girl on the block.. I live with my Hubby and our 7 fur babies. I came to create Art after I was in a terrible motorcycle accident. Before that I was a professional Dancer. The doctors had told me I would never walk again let alone dance. I needed a Artistic Outlet badly and started to explore the world of Art.. Art became my Passion, Therapy and I would say probably saved my life. I was consumed at one time with the world of Dance and so it is with Art now. I just recently got into Oil Paints and totally love them. Before that I was creating Whimsical Pieces using Watercolors and Watercolor crayons. I have kind of grown out of that and am exploring all forms of oil painting .. Landscapes, Still Lives and most of all portraits pieces that also have a story in the painting I still work with my watercolors and Acrylics and love to try any new mediums but seem to keep going back to the oils. lol Well that's about me in a Nut Shell. A Pecan I guess. lol
Art is when you hear a knocking from your soul...

 :bigwelcome:   Hi Robyn!  :wave: Wow...you have quite the story. I'm glad you found us and hope you will post some of your pieces you have done. Nolan will be so happy to have another 'oily'!  ;D We all will in truth, I'm just a bit of a waterbaby myself.  ;)   If you have any queries just sing out, there's usually someone about that can sort you through. I look forward to seeing your works. Come often and have fun!!!  :yippee:
Cheers, Val
