Hello and welcome to my little corner of the Internet!
My name is Robyn Lester, and I'm a Canadian artist with a passion for nature, creative exploration and personal growth. By day, I work in the non-profit sector coordinating programs for youth. By night, I work on my art alongside the best studio companion: my dog.
If you've had the chance to peruse my website, you've likely already discovered that my art varies a lot. Having realized that my creative instincts can lead me in all sorts of interesting directions, I now work in limited series to allow myself the space to indulge my artistic whims.
Although my work differs significantly from one series to the next, the underlying theme remains the same: a visual exploration of the link between nature and our inner worlds.
I've been developing my craft for the past two decades. In 2018, I began showing my work publicly at local cafes and art shows. I temporarily stepped back from public events due to the pandemic but continued to paint. During this period, I launched a four-month fundraiser called the Happy Mail Project, which involved painting over 300 mini-artworks and raised $800 for charity.
I hold a degree in art history and a post-graduate certificate in scriptwriting. I'm currently a member of Arteast as well as the West Carleton Arts Society, where I served as Secretary on the Board of Directors from January 2020 to November 2021.
If you have any questions about my work, feel free to reach out :)
