I think I have always been an artist.
From the beginning the process of creating something from nothing has struck me as magical. And, over the years, that magical process has had its way with me, leading me from doodler, to art student, to a professional. With much work and dedication I have been able to pull together all of my creative experience in art, design and illustration to launch my own freelance art and design business.
During the course of my career I have been commissioned to paint limitless subjects, exhibited my art in a number of venues, worked in the field of graphic design for close to 10 years, and have illustrated an episode of a TV series produced and broadcasted by the CBC.
In 2014 my daughter Shaine Robin was born. She has become my greatest muse, the centre of my world, and the inspiration behind Allison Robin Studios.
I create from the heart. Every line in a sketch, every glimmer of light in an expression captured in a portrait is planned and carefully executed. Every art print is designed by me, professionally printed in large format, and then cropped with my own hands (and some tools) in my studio.
When you support small businesses, you truly are investing in someone's dream.
