Robin has been creating murals since the late 1990's.
As of January 2006, she has painted 12 murals for the city of Kitchener through the Graffiti Busters program, working closely with local youth and guiding them in the creation of beautiful works of art for their communities. Most of these murals can be viewed around Kitchener in local parks, recreation centers and community buildings. Another place to see Robin’s murals is Bingemans Park, at their new Fun Worx facility.
Robin works closely with private clients as well, to create the perfect mural for children’s rooms or nurseries. Her original, hand-painted murals are fun, colourful and full of whimsical wonder and enchantment, creating a moment that captures the child within us all.
