Robin Janes is a native of Richmond, Va. After working as a nurse and raising a family, she began taking art classes. Drawing and painting quickly became a passion. Working primarily in oils, she loves to paint "en plein air", outside in nature, looking directly at her subject.
"When I'm not outside painting, I love to take classes and practice drawing the human figure. Whether I'm practicing gesture drawing in a room full of artists or standing alone in the woods at my easel, I feel an intense connection to my subject. I try to communicate those feelings through my paintings."
