Twinkle Valley and Beyond - A Collection of Starry Images from Paonia, Colorado’s Robin Arthur

Please come celebrate this work with us on Friday, June 7th during Ridgway's First Friday Event!

Paonia, Colorado artist Robin Arthur grew up in Texas and earned a BFA in drawing and painting from the University of North Texas in the culturally thriving town of Denton. She began her professional art career in San Antonio painting vibrant and joyful custom pet portraits with a nod to Mexico’s Day of the Dead style using brilliant colors, skulls, flowers and butterflies. Her animal portrait business now encompasses a wide range of wildlife, farm animals, pets, reptiles and birds, with a recent focus on exotic chickens and their dramatic plumage. She has painted hundreds of animal portraits for happy collectors around the globe. In 2019, Robin chose to take a sabbatical from the pressures of a commission-based art practice, then painting a well-received series of expressive abstracts. Now residing on a mesa high above the North Fork Valley of western Colorado, she is creating both oil and acrylic landscapes from the beauty that surrounds her.
