Mary Lynne Robbins
Artist Statement - "A long-time performer/teacher of music and theatre arts, I have always appreciated fine art in all its forms. I would describe my visual art as introspective and spontaneous. It reflects the many interests in my life, especially music and dance. I am a founding member of ACTA, the Arts Council for the Trussville Area and directed and performed in many plays and musicals over the years.
I’m a member of three art associations, and have won several awards in watercolor and mixed media in members’ art shows and fine art festivals.
My art is abstract or representational and a good percentage of it is collage. Of all the art forms (and I use several), collage has allowed me the greatest creative freedom and flexibility. I use found materials (such as old music, feathers, corrugated material, cheesecloth, beads); and created materials (prepared papers, pieces from other paintings or prints of my other paintings); or a combination of both.
The path of exploration and experimentation is ongoing and continues to sustain my passion for creativity and the arts."
