Robin Whitfield 

Robin works on location in the rivers, swamps and forests of the deep south. Her process is about connectivity to the natural world. She regards her work as visual poetry and spiritual conversations in the language of color and shape. She works on paper with traditional watercolors and with pigments gathered from the wild.

"My mission as an artist and human is to spend as much time as possible in natural systems, particularly on public land. I hope to inspire others to go outside and explore these wild places!”

Robin lives in Grenada, Mississippi. She graduated from Delta State University in 1996 with a BFA in painting and drawing.   She has been on the Mississippi Arts Commission Roster since 2006, an artist-in-residence for ArtPlace Mississippi since 2002 and an Audubon Master Naturalist of Mississippi since 2007. She has given creative workshops and exhibited her work widely across the state for the past 15 years. Her artworks and illustrations have been featured in numerous publications including “Eudora Welty’s World: words on nature” edited by Patti Carr-Black. She was selected to be the Artist-In Residence at Noxubee National Wildlife Refuge for the fall of 2014.
