Robyn Lester creates evocative landscapes inspired by her experiences in nature. In constant pursuit of artistic growth, her paintings can vary from abstracted and expressive to a more traditional 'snapshot' of the landscape. Overall, her goal is the same: to capture the texture, energy and magnificence of our natural world.
Although Robyn works mainly in acrylics, she is always on the lookout for different creative avenues to explore – from watercolour painting and printmaking to writing plays and spoken word. To her, exploration is inspiration.
She holds a degree in art history from the University of Guelph and a post-graduate certificate in scriptwriting from Algonquin College. She currently serves as secretary for the West Carleton Arts Society.
When she’s not pursuing her creative projects, Robyn works as a business advisor supporting Ottawa entrepreneurs in their business endeavors.
