Robin Sandler Artwork
I am originally from the Detroit area and have been painting professionally since 1995. My work has evolved over the years and includes a variety of styles, from pop art to abstact. I use rich, vibrant colors and different materials to produce a "sculptural feel". More recently, I have been using neutral colors as well.
My artistic training was at the Cranbrook Schools from 1965 -1971, where I was introduced to a variety of art forms including sculpture, weaving, ceramics, and painting. I later studied at the Birmingham Bloomfield Art Center, where I developed new techniques in oil painting, acrylics and collage. When I came to Portland, I studied encaustic painting while continuing to refine my own personal style.
As a painter, I have always been attracted to works which are rich in color, texture and design. The joy I experience in doing my work comes from the process itself, mixing colors, adding new materials and experimenting with fresh ideas and techniques.
I have enjoyed being part of the Portland Art Scene, feeling that the community has a great appreciation for the arts. I continue to be impressed by the originality and unique styles of Northwest artists.
