Becky Robbins

San Diego, CA

As we all are, I’m an amalgamation of lifetimes and experiences, messy beautiful life. Since childhood, I’ve had a strong curiosity to know more, see more, love more, be more, do more. I’m a seeker and dreamer and have (thankfully) been accused of being idealistic. This is the only way it can work for me to remain in the groove that allows creativity to flourish. Being alive now with all the access and discoveries and the expansion that technology facilitates is the ultimate thrill ride for me. It’s the key to the door for me to write and paint. Having traversed the landscapes of medicine and then business, now art has emboldened me with great gratitude for the opportunity to open my mind and heart and stand in front of a canvas and let it fly. No greater joy!
