” My artwork is about empathy—for ourselves, our stories, and for the planet. When we spend time with art that moves us, we experience our shared humanity and feel our connection to the natural world.”

Robin Brooks

Welcome to my homepage. I explore aspects of nature and story through art-making. As I work in my studio, I am mindful of the unavoidable reality of a rapidly changing climate. While this is in the background, I try to create images that inspire us and give us hope.

Collage is a playful process where the unexpected can happen. As I play with the papers, adding, arranging, and composing, I see possibilities and find new harmonies and dissonances. https://robinbrooksart.com/the-foremothers-project/ While visiting my galleries, I invite you to “read” my collages as you would read a poem, finding the unexpected in the familiar.

Since my early years, I have always been an interdisciplinary artist. So, when the opportunity presented itself, I returned to the stage playing Julia Gibbs in Thornton Wilder’s “Our Town.” To learn more, read my blog post entitled Doing the Impossible Thing. https://robinbrooksart.com/doing-the-impossible-thing/

Mark your calendars now! On the weekend of May 19th, 2023 I will bring the Foremothers Project to life in Freeport Maine. So please stay tuned! https://www.meetinghousearts.org
