It's really captured our dog, Homer so well! Thanks!


The Journey of RobiniArt

I am a native Texan. My paintings are inspired by nature, the wide open spaces of Texas, its cultural mix and the energy that results when rural and urban societies meet and marry.

I have had dozens of jobs over the past two or more decades: Dairy Queen fry cook, telemarketer, necklace maker, retail clerk, coffee barista, day care worker, psychic hotline operator, vacuum salesperson, cocktail waitress, receptionist, customer service representative, designer, caterer, art exhibition coordinator, fund raiser, marketing specialist and event planner.

Somewhere in the midst of working those jobs and raising an amazing (if I do say so myself) child as a single mom, I earned a BFA in drawing and painting at the University of North Texas in Denton, TX, studying with Vincent Falsetta, Rob Erdle, Annette Lawrence, Robert Jessup and Ed Blackburn. For years afterward, I avoided a potentially unpredictable art career in lieu of something more stable and practical. Those days are over. Now is the time to paint!

The “Dia de los Muertos” portrait series featured on this site is a respectful nod to the traditional Mexican holiday of Dia de los Muertos that focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember those who have passed away. These portraits celebrate our friends, family and furry family members, past and present.

I’m also creating a series of Texas wildlife and farm animals in this style – and a few humans! If you are interested in commissioning a portrait of you, your pet or a special person, please contact me via the following:

I also enjoy painting happy cactus plants and flowers. These are available for purchase or commission. To view available inventory, click here. Please contact me with inquiries. Enjoy!

    Texas is my home and I've never been happier to be back in its safety net. :-)

    I've had this crazy dog for 11 years and he is the inspiration for my Dia de los Perros series. I'm thinking about writing and illustrating a children's book about him entitled, "FRAAAAAAAAAAAAAANK!". He is a handful.

Order fulfillment will take approximately 1-3 business days after payment is received unless it is a custom order, which can then take six to eight weeks, depending on variables set by the customer. This does not include time in transit. I will notify you if there are any delays.
Your package will be sent via USPS mail. Each painting will be wrapped individually for extra protection. Tracking information will be sent to your Etsy account and Paypal account. If you would like insurance, please let me know ahead of time and I will send you a revised invoice.
