Robin comes from a family of artists and her creativity has been fostered by her parents since a child. Following this path, she has taught children and adults in local schools and art institutions including Palos Verdes Art Center. Robin has over 18 years of teaching experience.
Robin is an imaginative and versatile artist and works in many mediums. She finds that working with and exploring different mediums provides endless creative avenues for her self-expression. Her works are frequently noted for their whimsical style and her inspiration often comes from dreams.
For over a decade, Robin Bott has focused on creating and teaching others the art of producing mosaic murals. Recently, Robin worked as a teaching artist through PVAC’s Artist in Residence Program in the Palos Verdes Peninsula Unified School District. Second graders helped Robin design and tile a total of twenty-eight 3’ x 5’ glass tile mosaic murals in Palos Verdes schools. Robin also has designed projects for the Art At Your Fingertips program, which reaches over 7,000 Peninsula students. During the summer, she teaches middle school Ceramic and Mosaic art classes through Chadwick School.
Robin has participated in live mosaic art demonstrations at events such as “University by the Sea” East Village Arts District, Long Beach; “LA Artwalk”, Takeuchi Gallery; “Malaga Cove Garden Show”, Palos Verdes; and Terranea Resort, Palos Verdes.
She has also created very large pieces of art including a giant puppet for the East Village Arts District Halloween Event and a ten foot tall mosaic guitar tribute to “The Doors”, created for the Sunset Boulevard “Gibson Guitar Town” event in August, 2010. Her guitar was chosen to sit atop the world famous Whisky-a-go-go for a year until the 25 “Guitar Town” guitars were auctioned for a children’s charity at Julian’s Auctions in Beverly Hills. Robin’s guitar earned the highest bid of $16,250. Her guitar is currently on display at The Soho House, Sunset Blvd.
Robin’s true passion is creating art and helping others to express themselves creatively through art.
Robin’s work is currently on display at Hellada Gallery, Long Beach, and The Artists’ Studio, Palos Verdes.
