Robin Burgert is a Sonoma County artist who paints and sculpts. She received her BFA degree from Sonoma State University.
“When asked why or what I was thinking when creating a painting or a piece of sculpture, I usually wonder myself. What is the pull I feel to create? It’s not something I can easily put into words.
Before starting a piece, I close my eyes and feel a spot in my solar plexus. From there, I choose materials, color, brushes, palate knives, whatever feels right.
When a piece is complete, that same place in my chest feels done.
If a viewer is touched in that same spot, I feel as though we’ve spoken without words.”
