VERMONT COLLEGE OF FINE ARTS

Robyn is pursuing her MFA degree. She holds a BFA in Fine Art from the San Francisco Art Institute and did not plan to be a graphic designer. Eventually, though, Robyn figured out that designers can make a living while discovering unique solutions to ever changing creative challenges. Currently a freelancer, Robyn works out of a mountaintop studio in the North Woods of New Hampshire, where she lives with her husband and daughter. Thanks to the magic of the internet, she still services clients nationwide. Life can be serious so Robyn prefers a playful outlook when designing. She works extensively in the arts and crafts industries, which requires just that. For weightier subjects, she creates a balance with laughter and meditation, and has been known to host mid-winter karaoke parties in the woods.

A MANTRA OR SAYING YOU LIVE BY?
“There’s nothing you can do that’s more important than being fulfilled. You become a sign, you become a signal, transparent to transcendence; in this way, you will find, live, and become a realization of your own personal myth.” – Joseph Campbell
