Robin Hamman-Borland Robin received her degree in Fine Art from the University of South Florida. Upon graduation she began her full time career painting at a studio in Dunedin Florida. In 1999 Robin helped to create and manage Trailside Artist Colony, an artist co-op dedicated to helping professional artists show, market and sell their work. In 2000 Robin moved her studio into her home in Safety Harbor Florida and began a career in local politics winning two terms as a commissioner for the city of Safety Harbor. In 2004 she successfully held a position as an aide to then State Representative Gus Bilirakis and left in 2005 to make a bid for State Representative District 48. Robin continued her painting through out her political career often painting places that she would visit on vacation or business. “I like to capture places and people as they are in that moment in time. I try to convey not only what my eye is seeing, but also what emotions are being felt by the people or places in that moment in time.” I paint quickly trying to get down every feeling that I have as I experience it” “I use color, line, and shape to build images that will project an emotion to the person viewing the art.” Robin works in acrylic as well as oil. She now resides in Palm Harbor Florida with her husband Bob and son Oliver. Her paintings are owned by many local politicians, business professionals and several New York radio personalities.
