We are counting down the days to Comfort & Joy, and over the next few weeks we are excited to be introducing you to some of the fabulous artists and makers who have donated works to our charity silent art auction!
To start with, we are thrilled to introduce you to Robyn Walker, the creative force behind The Lightwalker Art. In her own words:
“Hi my name is Robyn I have been an artist my whole life. My mother is a painter, and everyone in my family has some kind of artistic talent, so not only did I have support, but I also always had access to alot of art supplies, so I guess it’s not a big surprise that I took up art as a full-time pursuit. I paint, draw, illustrate, tattoo, and more. My work is often colourful, and I like to walk the line between realism and impressionism. I am always looking for new and interesting angles and trying to find the beauty in everything. I love fantasy, which tend to come out in my artwork. Bodies, animals, portraits, and anything with natural lines tend to be my main subject matter. As for style, to put it simply, I don’t have one, I have many. I am a young artist and I have many years ahead of me to find a style, for now I like to play around with all different styles, mediums and colour palettes. I don’t like rules or structure very much, so my portfolio is anything but cohesive. But if you look closely you will notice patterns, themes, similarities across my work. I like contrast, colour, balance, and most of all, I love art. I live an breathe art, it is my reason for pretty much everything I do. I hope you enjoy it”
Robyn has generously donated a large number of original paintings, including a number of pieces from her recent ‘100 Butts’ gallery installation. Check out her website and her Instagram for more from this incredibly talented local artist. Thank you for your support Robyn!
