Robbie’s intent is not to reflect or convey anything ‘concrete’ or ‘real’ but to tell a story through aesthetics and elements of composition. We can see the three main elements that abstract artwork encompasses: focus on form, color and texture – all three are dominant in Robbie’s work and visualize Robbie’s desire to invite people to interpret her work through their own lens. I am also really impressed by how the artist skillfully expresses the mood and the atmosphere of the landscape she depicts.

In 2021, my sweet beloved companion, Luna, a beautiful blue merle Australian Shepherd was diagnosed with cancer.

Like all the art in my life, Luna was my therapy as well. It was at this time I started painting trees and paths. We had hiked many trails together and I knew those days of walking in nature were coming to an end, of sorts.

The painting, I’ll Take You There, was the first of this collection. I believe it was a way to create a path between me and Luna. The blue represents her expressive and beautiful eyes and the trees, the coloring of her fur.

I believe in spirit animals and that Luna’s spirit shows up as a bluebird, which can be spied in several of my paintings.

There are various birds painted in all the works of Naked Trees. They represent life, so present in winter, a season that invites going inside, to contemplate and renew.
