@robinpedrero Robin Maria Pedrero (Florida, USA) – PR
Robin Maria Pedrero paints the spirit and energy of life in rhythmic layers of color. She responds to what catches her eyes and heart, personifying nature, and evoking a range of moods with a touch of whimsy. “I use a symbolic visual language exploring both the visible and invisible, creating a commentary on relationships and thoughts. As I work, the images can be unexpected and flowing from gathered memories. Music plays a role in my process and seeps into my art. I build layers, making connections, and a story comes forth and unfolds. The work evolves, and quite often by the time the painting is finished, it has a history of stories interwoven in the layers.”
Born in Connecticut in 1964, Pedrero studied painting with professional artists and exhibited at the Mystic Art Association as a teen. Pedrero is an award-winning artist with work in museum permanent collections, film, and is collected worldwide. Pedrero has worked from her Florida studio since 1989. She is an elected signature member of the Pastel Society of America. She was awarded Best Artist in Florida 2012 by Baterbys Art Auction Gallery , listed in Florida International Magazine’s Florida Artists Hall of Fame, and her work will be released on Artiste Wine Labels in June 2012.
