Kathleen Robbins earned her MFA at Massachusetts College of Art where she was an adjunct faculty member for 5 years. A resident of the Button Factory Artist Studios in Portsmouth, many of her landscapes reflect the seacoast area in New Hampshire and Maine. Gallery representation includes Van Ward Gallery Ogunquit ME, Camden Falls Gallery Camden ME as well as Art 3 Gallery Manchester NH.
Inspiration comes from many sources including still life and landscape. The process of building the painting is critical to her work. Gesture, color, line and surface all come together to walk the illusive line between representation and abstraction.
Over her career Kathleen has received many awards including three best in show awards for plein air painting in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Her work is in many private collections throughout New England and the United States.
Her professional experience also includes working as an art therapist at Exeter Hospital in New Hampshire.
