Kari Robbins


My name is Kari Robbins, I am a graduate of Western Michigan University with a B.A. degree in English/creative writing emphasis and a minor in studio art. I am a single mother of two, and a server/bartender. My influences include: Degas, Kandinsky, Cezanne, Henri Matisse, Frida Kahlo and Salvador Dali. My purpose in my art is to make people smile, or laugh, to perhaps remember a funny moment or an imaginative situation and find humor in it. I, also, think that in life we all sometimes make a fool of ourselves and it's best to just laugh and move forward. My aim is to attempt to capture a bit of that color in my art.

Clowns came to me through a friend's suggestion one Thanksgiving Eve, it was a pivotal point in my life. They have literally changed my life, for clowns are universal, colorful, sometimes scary, sometimes funny, and I appreciate the creativity that they allow when painting. I prefer oils over all other paints, for it's fluidity and ability to cover a multitude of "mistakes", but the best thing about oil, is sometimes something occurs that I did not plan on and it is exactly what the painting needed. Sometimes I have pulled off a painting in 2 days, or even a few weeks. The most recent I have been taking my time with, but I have so many ideas in my head that it's time to push forward and paint more. It's definitely been a learning experience, I learn more everyday, but it's the best thing in the world at the end of a long day, to just sit back and paint some clowns!
