Robin’s aim is to subvert some of the traditional, outdated aspects of the art world that keep art out of reach for many and to make it more attainable for all. It didn’t start out this way. In fact, it started (as for many of us) by taking over the end of a table and choosing just to create.
Today Alice is talking with Washington DC artist Robin Davisson, and a member of the Connected Artist Club, about a career shift from science into art. She now has a shop-front store; StudioLab RD where the aim is to be inclusive and part of the community, nurturing connections and bringing people together. Her inventive approach has lead Robin beyond making and selling paintings on her website and in this episode she shares ideas from an Art Lovers Collective, to Art Parties and Salon evenings. How can you subvert what’s the expected norm?
We talk about making brave moves – and the minutiae of getting it all done and figuring it out as you go.
Find out more about Robin on her website where you can find out about Art Parties or sign up for the Art Lovers’ Collective

So much great information here; excellent organization. I wish I had this kind of coaching & mentorship when I began my solo architectural practice 25 years ago, rather than fumbling around on my own. What an awesome set of resources!
