Serendipity Robin Mead

Robin Mead sees her whimsical, colorful art as an “expression of joy,” translated onto paper, canvas and the digital screen. “My creations are highly stylized and working with subjects like birds and flowers gives me artistic freedom. I can go wherever I want with them and still have them seem believable,” she says.
Mead loves to spend time in nature looking for inspiration, but always carries a bag of art supplies, ready to create wherever she goes. Serendipity was completed in the waiting room of a health practitioner’s offi ce.
Mead’s work spans media and subject matter from acrylic and mixed media paintings of birds and fl owers to watercolor landscapes and gardens. She also likes to hand-make multicolored crocheted afghans and art journals as joyful creations for everyday use.
Mead was a full-time social worker before attending art school on Long Island, New York, which turned her lifelong passion into a career. Her work can be found in homes around the world, as well as in album covers, books and art tutorials.
Mead and her husband recently relocated from New York to a small farm in Elberton, Georgia, where the family will raise cows, chickens, vegetables, bees and flowers.
