ROBYNKIRKART is evidence of a passion growing and evolving daily.
Robyn Kirk was born in country Queensland. After completing school and studies, she travelled overseas and eventually based herself in Brisbane. While operating her own creative and design field businesses she studied at Queensland College of Art, Brisbane Institute of Art and Brisbane Academy of Art, combined with many private art tutorials. After working with art in her design based business, she opened White Canvas Gallery in Fortitude Valley, to create a venue for artists and functions. Later she moved to a warehouse, Whitecanvas Space, hoping to have time to work on her painting again. Just recently Robyn has chosen to concentrate on her painting, full-time.
She has exhibited in solo and group exhibitions, received awards for work and completed commissioned portraits and paintings. Her sold work is now scattered in Australian cities and internationally.
Her love of colour, space and design has instigated some very large abstract works. These are an extension of her design capability and the need to express more. Whilst abstraction has become paramount in her work currently, figurative and realistic motives are also very apparent in their formation.
Robynkirkart studio space is in Hamilton, Brisbane.
