About Robyn

Robyn has always been interested in art and in creative pursuits. After moving to the South Burnett about fifteen years ago, she joined a local art group and has been painting ever since.

Her work reflects her love of the country and her desire to do different things. “It is a continuing journey of discovery and growth, which sometimes comes easy and sometimes not.”


She paints predominantly in acrylics but uses other mediums including sculpture and papier maché. Subjects vary, but she likes the country themes as well as dabbling with abstract and modern.

Robyn has a Diploma in Creative Visual Arts and a Certificate IV in Design from the International School of Colour & Design, along with Certificate in Interior Decorating (with Distinction) from Stott’s Correspondence College.

She has completed numerous workshops led by artists such as Lyn Dieffenbach , Keith Dewel and Jenni Kelly and has attended the Julian Ashton School of Art in Sydney and the McGregor School in Toowoomba.

Robyn was chosen by Flying Arts as one of 27 regional artists to exhibit in the “Five Senses” Exhibition held at the Brisbane State Library in March 2009. She has also won Awards for Excellence for Colour Design and Creativity in Colour & Design from the International School of Colour and Design.

As the winner of the 2015 South Burnett Acquisitive Art prize  and winner of the Wondai Regional Art Gallery’s June Acquisitive Competition in 2010, Robyn now has two of her paintings in the South Burnett Regional Councils permanent Art collection. Her works have won several ‘People’s Choice’ awards in Wondai Regional Art Gallery competitions as well as section prizes in acrylics, pastels and sculpture.
