Robyn Shannon

Hi my name is Robyn, I love working with oil paints, mixed media, charcoal, conte pencils and occasionally a bit of ceramic sculpture. Also learning new mediums is an enjoyable challenge

To me art is a continuous journey of discovery, expressing my emotions and ideas through imaginative images inspired from inner visions, emotions, people and the world.

As Artists we journey into the wonderful world of creativity and imagination expressing ourselves individually with diverse styles and mediums and that is what makes it even more interesting and inspiring.
