Based in Port Waikato, Robin graduated from AUT in 2005 with a Bachelor of Visual Arts, majoring in painting. Since then, Robin has been the recipient of many awards, including finalist in the highly acclaimed Portage Awards in 2009 and 2010, but also for her painting. Robin also was invited to participate in a cultural exchange as one of 3 artists from New Zealand, taking her to the NongYuan International Arts Village in Chengdu, the biggest contemporary arts centre in western China.
We love Robin's work, and the expression she is able to convey in her raw, emotional sculpting and painting. Her coloured clay is a new dimension for Robin, allowing the sculptures to be sold as a triptych or individually.
Welcome, Robin Ranga!
