Robin Marsh took a leap into an art career a little later in life. Not believing she could make a living as an artist, she majored in management and corporate buying receiving a degree at the Fashion Institute in NYC as well as a degree at Purdue University in West Lafayette Indiana.
Robin worked as a buyer for several years. Not finding any satisfaction in the career, Robin dove head first into the world of art in the fall of 2014. Robin discovered her love for working with metals when she took a small metals jewelry class at the Columbus School of Art and Design. With the tools she learned in the class as well as a lot of self teaching, she has developed her current works of copper etched and engraved wildlife. Robin currently lives in Jupiter with her husband and son. The process she uses is an acid etch and hand engraving method. She works mainly with copper due to its richness. All of the framed pieces are mounted onto the outside of the glass. It is an optical illusion which allows for a tactile experience. Yes! You are encouraged to feel the texture in the copper work. Living where she does, she is drawn to Florida native wildlife. She gladly accepts commissioned work and requests as well. Thank you for taking the time to learn about the artist and her process.
