Marian Robinson


I’m a self-taught artist and have been creating jewelry for nearly ten-years. It began as a hobby and has evolved into a part-time passion. My work has been included in a host of museum shops including the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Woodmere Museum, Michener, The Delaware Contemporary Museum and the Noyes Museum in Ocean City, N.J., along with a few select retail shops including Philadelphia’s cutting-edge boutique Joan Shepp.
My focus is to create arresting work using surprising material such as Styrofoam, rubber shelving, cardboard puzzle pieces, domino blocks or whatever material or object that sparks my imagination. Add fabric, paper, vintage beads, shells to the list. Creating custom work to incorporate an individual’s meaningful mementos is a particular treat.
Art and dance each play a role as inspiration. As a docent at the Barnes Museum, I’m surrounded with a world of beauty. That constant feed of creativity pushes me to experiment and find new ways of expression. 
 Dance is a constant, and I regularly take Latin dance classes. Dance is about movement, balance, line, and nearly all the aesthetic qualities I seek to achieve in each work I create.

Speak Memory is the title of an evocative memoir by Vladimir Nabokov. It is a sensualist's recollection of his early childhood through the distilled, self-aware perspective of the adult novelist.
It is through the lens of memory and feeling that these landscapes emerge. These paintings, their light, color, and tactile surfaces are more about feeling, memory, dream, remembrance and forgetting.
