Robin has been working with clay since she was a teenager growing up in Northern Ireland and Yorkshire and studied Ceramics at Loughborough College of Art in the early 70’s
“I enjoy the processes of working with clay as a media and the transformation it goes through when fired.”
She has used this passion to develop creative work to share with others through teaching and community arts practice. Since leaving university Robin has exhibited widely and produced many commissioned works.
She became involved in community arts from 1996 when she established the charity, Escape Community Arts, using the creative Arts to support health & wellbeing in the community. She commissioned many local artists over the next 20 years to develop exciting community programmes for members of the community and delivered a series of high profile community programmes across Warwickshire over this period. Designing programmes for people of all ages and abilities to create public art including. Marsh Nature Reserve and ‘Warwick Millennium Tile Project 2000’, working with school children in ten schools in Warwick to design and create tiles for the Town Centre.
She has always enjoyed working with other artists collaboratively and I has been involved with several selling cooperative groups since the 80’s. She was a Founder Member ‘Clayworks’ in Worcester with Midland Potters and ‘The Saturday Gallery’ in Stratford upon Avon.
Robin became a Member of ‘Potters; in Bristol 1999 and The Gallery at the Guild in Chipping Campden from 2002 where she still exhibits regularly and has been involved with Courtyard Artists Warwickshire C.I.C exhibiting at the Courtyard Gallery, a local artist venture, near her home in Stratford upon Avon.
She lives and works in Stratford where she has a small studio overlooking her garden. She has designed a number of ceramic structures to enhance her small garden which is packed full of numerous interesting plants. Her current ceramic work is inspired by annual visits to Orkney and Cornwall which provide a wealth of wild sky and landscapes. She has recently been exploring the use of fabric with her ceramics to evoke some of the amazing colour and atmosphere of these landscapes.
