More about Me

Robyn Emerson

My paintings are really just intuitive interpretations of an inner landscape, or an instinctive response to my world. Even the way I work is mostly instinct, and for art to have validity in its own terms it must be like that. I think Julia Cameron said that no artist ever really knows, you just take leap after leap in the dark, and thats true of the way I work as well. Sometimes I get into that wonderful place where it all just flows effortlessly and I dont have to think about it, but mostly I have to just almost force myself to get out there on the edge and go for it, to move ahead. There is still so much I want to explore through the encaustic medium, I feel Im only at the beginning of what can be discovered and what it can do.
