Robyn Drake

Fine Art / MFA
Fine Art, Drawing & Painting

Robyn Drake grew up on an Iowa farm amid cattle, horses, and expansive landscapes. Robyn moved to Chicago after attending Drake University. In 2013, she moved to California, and currently resides in Half Moon Bay.

Using oils, oil pastels, charcoal, and more recently, acrylics, she explores the interplay of awe and endurance, vulnerability and resilience, through representational subjects.

Robyn’s work has been exhibited in group and solo exhibitions primarily in Chicago and California. Her evolving horse series marked a significant return to her roots on the ranch in Iowa. Robyn’s drawings and paintings are in private collections in the USA, Europe, and Asia, and have won awards in juried competitions.

Drake was awarded scholarships and earned degrees in studio art and art history at Drake University, with further development through post-graduate classes at the Art Institute of Chicago, and the Academy of Art University in San Francisco.
