Robin Williamson

United States

Robin Williamson is best known for her refined, delicate, and realistic style of painting in oils.  She is an award-winning artist from Texas, who has sometimes been referred to as a “renaissance woman,” being an artist, possessing two engineering degrees, and being a skilled musician.  After a successful career in Information Technology, Robin "retired" to raise her three children. While doing so, she re-ignited a life-long love affair with art.  When her youngest child finally went off to kindergarten, Robin took her first formal oil-painting class and was hooked.  Since then, she has fervently pursued both education and easel time to continue to hone her skills.  She is passionate about art education and has studied with some of today’s leading figurative artists such as Max Ginsberg, Anthony Ryder, Robert  Liberace, Joshua LaRock, and Sean Cheetham.   She is a graduate of Johnnie Liliedahl's School of Classical Oil Painting, and has studied at Studio Incamminati, Scottsdale Artist's School, The Coppini Academy, and The Ryder Studio. 


Robin's desire is to glorify her Creator by reproducing the beauty of life around her.  Painting people is her first love.  She is intrigued by people of all walks of life, who do everything from the mundane to the extraordinary.  She particularly enjoys painting dancers because it combines her love of painting the figure with her love of dance.  She is equally adept at still-life painting, and finds it an exciting challenge to capture the realistic look of inanimate objects.  Robin’s artistic influences are some of the great master figurative painters such as William A. Bouguereau, Rembrandt van Rijn, Ilya Repin, and of course Leonardo Da Vinci, an engineer, artist, and musician. 


For the last four years, Robin has run a biweekly life-painting group that she considers pivotal to her development as an artist.  She also enjoys sharing her craft with others by teaching oil painting classes at her local art league.  She is a signature member of the National Oil and Acrylic Painter's Society, a member of the Oil Painters of America, the Portrait Society of America, American Women Artists, and the Art League of Fort Bend.
