Regarding this art show Robin stated, “I am very pleased and excited to be chosen by The Dancing Elephant Gallery for this solo show. It is nice to be recognized regionally in the Northwest art community and also because this is where I live and work.” Much of her art is limited edition and designed for both avid collector and local art enthusiast.
