The Time is Now

by Robin London Issue: Spring/Summer 2021

Robin London

Robin London is a mixed media artist and mother living and creating in Austin, Texas. Born in Kansas City, MO, she is largely self-taught, except for high school art classes. Even from a very young age, Robin had a primary interest in art, science, and design, and in discovering beauty even in the very unconventional. Her goal with her art is in seeking to communicate this unique perspective and also in communicating our connections to each other and to the environment via her art. She enjoys making colorful and expressive works of art which often contain texture, pattern, and a layered approach. 

Robin put her art aside to train as a biological scientist, then worked in the pharmaceutical industry for over 10 years and started a family. The events of these past few years, and especially of 2020, propelled her back into her art pursuits with renewed passion. She enjoys working with inks, acrylics, collage, photography and sometimes digital media. She is inspired by the beauty of the natural world, current world events, and the emotions and memories that come forth when she is engrossed in the creative process. 

Her work was exhibited in a group show at Art For The People Gallery in Austin, and two of her artworks were published in the April 2021 issue of Beyond Words Literary Magazine. She also participated in Art And Found Day 2021 and the Brooklyn Sketchbook Project.
