Robin J. Edmundson believes that every one of her paintings should have as much ‘home’ in it as possible. Her home is in rural southern Indiana, and she paints the clouds, woods, fields, marshes and farms next door. You are invited to sit and take a long look at the way the light comes in the windows and moves over the fields and sky. Everything that happens in this world happens under the sky. We ought to look at it more.

Her path to watercolor was a circuitous one. After earning a Ph.D. in linguistics and teaching at Indiana University for 26 years, Robin turned her full attention to weaving and dyeing. She has won awards for her fiber art at such prestigious shows as Bloomington, Indiana’s, 4th Street Festival of the Arts and Crafts. She is a recipient of an Indiana Artist’s Grant. In 2014, she began to work with watercolor, first as a way to stay sane during Hoosier winters, and then as a personal challenge, to master this tricky medium. The process was very satisfying and she stuck with it.

As a primarily self-taught artist, Robin did an intensive study of color theory on her own, using that knowledge to inform her work as a dyer and fiber artist and later as a painter. Her artistic mantra is, ‘Don’t paint the thing, paint how the light hits the thing.’ and she’s spends a lot of time working out how to use color to best effect to do just that. She has been teaching color theory since 2003.
