Rogene (Genie) Robbins is an artist, writer, gluten free home cook/recipe developer, student of positive thinking and spirituality and blogger who sees being an artist as more about who she is rather than what she does. She approaches her life with the same creativity and awareness of the spiritual that she appraches her artwork.
She realized she was an artist during her first studio art class in high school. Later she experimented with various media before realizing her artistic medium was fabric and thread, using skills passed down from her grandmother and mother.
Over the years Rogene has developed her own unique, quirky style of art inspired by nature and life in general. She don’t use a lot of fancy equipment, preferring to work the “old fashioned” way with fabric, needle and thread, scissors, iron and a metal ruler. All of her stitching now is done by hand. You will see that she does love metallic thread. A few of her older pieces may include a bit of machine stitching.
Artwork by Rogene Robbins has been shown at a variety of venues including:
