For a very long time, Becky Robbins was best associated with her famous ex-husband, Tony Robbins. No more. For the last decade, the self-taught artist has poured her time and energy into crafting oil paintings that intricately weave together her past and present. Organic in practice, nothing is planned when she stands before a blank canvas to paint; though, she often splashes canvases with images of human faces, animals, flora, fauna, and texts that showcase her love of the world and humanity. The artist typically starts with an inspiration from life, and one concept leads to another and another. She connects individual images through ropes or a string of musical notes so that each piece feels cohesive. The entire process can take anywhere from 6 months to a year to finish an original painting. This South Florida/Southern Cali creative’s latest collection is titled Yūgen, a concept that is at the core of the appreciation of beauty and art in Japan.
