“When you've been through a difficult situation, it changes you”, said artist, Karyn Robinson. Robinson is a breast cancer survivor and although she says she rarely thinks about it these days, she can’t deny it changed her as an artist.

“I see the world differently and I try to bring a sense of playfulness and optimism to my artwork. I see beauty in just about everything and I want to paint it all!”

A writer and television producer by profession, Robinson didn't discover painting until her cancer diagnosis. She found painting to be good therapy and the hours she spent with paint brush in hand rekindled her childhood passion for art.

Robinson grew up in the Midwest and has lived in Arizona for nearly 25 years. “When we moved to the desert southwest I was immediately awe-struck by the beauty I saw all around me. Where some saw only rocks and dirt, I saw a sense of majesty. I love the sculptural shapes of the cacti and the way light and shadow plays on their form.”

In addition to her contemporary take on southwestern art, Robinson enjoys painting abstracts, unusual objects (check out her robot painting, “A Boy and His Dog”) and capturing people at play.

“Sometimes I feel that there is not enough time in the day to paint everything I want to paint! I’m so captivated by this wonderful, beautiful world. If I can just continue to paint and share my work with others I will be living the life I want to live."

“It’s taken me nearly 50 years to figure out what I want to be when I grow up”, said Robinson, “and I would never have discovered how happy painting makes me if it hadn't been for my experience with breast cancer. Talk about your silver linings.”
