Tasmania is quite isolated in many ways, but for many this is a blessing. Living on an island certainly has its advantages. One of the downsides for me is not meeting other cp artists.

When Robyn contacted me via the Australian Coloured Pencil Artists’ site I saw an opportunity to meet her in person, and I did!

Robyn recently moved to Ormaston, and works with a group of other artists at  Deloraine, about a thirty minute drive from my place.

It was wonderful meeting her and sharing some thoughts and ideas. As you can see I have posted some photos showing Robyn and some of her work. She is very much influenced by her environment, something that any artist living in Tasmania cannot escape.

Robyn prefers white paper and uses Prismacolor pencils. Her work is meticulous and very well presented.

I have included a photo (bottom) of a small drawing that Robyn was working on when I called in. It’s nice to see a drawing in its early stages. An impressive start Robyn!

Maybe Tasmania is not that isolated after all.
