Robin Hamman received her degree in Fine Art from the University of South Florida, and her Master’s degree in Arts In Medicine from the University of Florida. She began her full-time career painting at a studio in Dunedin, Florida, in 1999. Robin helped to create and manage Trailside Artist Colony, an artist co-op dedicated to assisting professional artists in showing, marketing and selling their work. In 2000 Robin moved her studio into her home in Safety Harbor Florida and began a career in local politics as a commissioner for Safety Harbor. Robin continued her painting throughout her political career, often painting places that she would visit on vacation or business. "I like to capture places and people as they are in that moment in time. I try to convey not only what my eye is seeing, but also what emotions are being felt by the people or places in that moment in time." I paint quickly, trying to get down every feeling that I have as I experience it" "I use color, line, and shape to build images that will project an emotion to the person viewing the art." Robin works in acrylic as well as oil. She has worked with veterans in recovery at a program she designed called Veterans Creating for Community. She has also worked with seniors and kids with substance addictions.
"Art making can distract from issues that a person may have, helping to promote a peaceful mind as well as enhance positive mental and physical outcomes." Along with working in the Arts In Medicine field, Robin has also launched an Art In Compassion initiative entitled 100 Cups of Compassion and a pet portrait business called The Twisted Leash. Her work can also be found at Artrobstudios.com, her online gallery where she offers online classes, artist retreats, and sells her work. She resides in St. Augustine, Florida.
