Robin Maria Pedrero paints the spirit and energy of life in rhythmic layers of color.  She responds to what catches her eyes and heart personifying nature, evoking a range of moods with a touch of whimsy.  “I use a symbolic visual language exploring both the visible and invisible creating a commentary on relationships and thoughts. As I work the images can be unexpected flowing from gathered memories. Music plays a role in my process and seeps into my art.  I build layers making connections and a story comes forth and unfolds. The work evolves, and quite often by the time the painting is finished it has a history of stories interwoven in the layers.”
