Robin L. Potter – @robinlpotter
As an artist, my paintings emerge from intuitive and expressionistic beginnings, and evolve when incorporating objects, text, mark making, writing, papers, fabric, ribbon, glass and other domestic, natural, and academic materials into the artworks to create vibrant and multidimensional intention and layers. I work on wood panels, paper, and on stretched and raw canvases. My work has been shown in local juried shows. Extending my art to wearables lends a new vibe to the art.
