Medium: Oils and Acrylics
Robin Roberts Tipton is a resident of Greenbrier Arkansas. She painted from an early age and her work was recognized during high school as it toured the state in various art exhibits. She commissioned artwork while in college pursuing a Master’s Degree in Special Education.
After graduating college and teaching school for 12 years, Robin took a hiatus from that career and instructed several art classes. Upon realizing how personally therapeutic that could be, she opted to partner with her mother, Martha Roberts in opening to the public Martha’s Art Studio in Greenbrier. She continued studying art under her mother, Joyce Burns, and the late Darlyne Paulsen.
Robin paints mainly with oils and acrylics, and her style varies from realism to abstract to idealism. Her passion is the lost art of murals and her artwork tends to be grand in scale. Her paintings lean toward impressionistic with substantial texture, bold colors and a unique genre that evokes happiness. Her paintings and murals are often inspired by Bible verses, which she explains as, “I believe everything in God’s world is a masterpiece and I want to capture a glimpse one painting at a time.”
Robin recalls her mother’s membership in the Conway League of Artists and her own excitement when she was allowed to attend meetings in her youth. She is now honored to follow in her mother’s footsteps as a member in addition to serving on the board.
