Robbie is the fifth out of his parent’s six children. He saw his older siblings’ courage and decided to leave Idaho to pursue his higher education. At the time, he knew nothing better than to get a Business Degree, but after one year at the University of Arkansas, he knew that he had a deep rooted passion for art that he could not ignore.

Robbie completed his Business Finance degree while making the most of his free time by working with children, participating in a fraternity, and working a variety of jobs. He came to realize people did not see the beauty around them. Robbie had been raised to acknowledge and revel in the beauty around him. No business school could change that.

In 2018, as he started his artistic journey, the majority of Robbie’s time was spent drawing. He studied books from Bridgeman and Loomis on figures and anatomy, followed by Carlson on landscape painting. His time as his father’s apprentice over the years has, of course, been more valuable than any self-teaching Robbie could manage.

Beyond drawing, Robbie had been able to handle Gouache and watercolor in his limited, college-living spaces. Once 2021 rolled around, he was commissioned by his employer to complete 12 oil paintings for a 2020 company calendar with a second printing scheduled for 2023. This was exactly the motivation Robbie needed to jumpstart his work in oils. Since that time, Robbie has continued painting on the weekends as he works full time with SupplyPike, a young and vibrant startup in North Western Arkansas.

Robbie’s future aspirations lie in a desire to make the most out of his upbringing. He plans on continuing his art education through every outlet available while developing business skills which will enable future art endeavors. Big things are coming as he continues down this road alongside his father, siblings, and their beautiful network of like minded artists. Robbie’s innate sense of wonder will continue to draw him back to the world of fine art in which he was raised.

Workshop Materials List

1. Clay – Chavant Le Beau Touche. Get the regular clay, not HM (high melt).
2. Clay warming devices, a metal bucket with a clamp on heat lamp or 100 W bulb works great.
3. Tie wire.
4. Aluminum foil.
5. Scissors.
6. Favorite sculpture tools.
7. Plank of wood (pine) approximately 8″ x 8″ x 2″.
Bring as many planks as you wish…the wood is used as the base for your sculpture.
8. Plumber’s pipe, 1/2″ threaded: Bring several different lengths…up to 10″…not PVC pipe.
Plumber’s pipe T joint.
Plumber’s pipe couplers.
Plumber’s pipe flange.
9. Screws and screwdriver to secure the flange to wood…this may be done before you arrive. (Place flange in the center of plank)
10. Wire cutters
11. Needle nose pliers
12. Rubber mallet.
13. Spatula
14. Measuring devices such as rulers, measuring tape, dividers, and calipers.
15. Because we concentrate on BIRDS IN FLIGHT, live models in the classroom are more distracting than useful. I will demonstrate the technique of constructing a cantilevered bird armature that can be used for many different bird species and will show you how to assemble shapes to capture the “gist” of the specific bird.
16. Bird field guides such as Peterson, Stokes, Golden, or Sibley. Sibley’s Guide to Birds (not Sibley’s Guide to Bird Life and Behavior) is best if bringing only one field guide. This popular book can usually be purchased at any bookstore.
17. Bring your laptop to the class if possible.
18. Bring your sketchbook.
