Frog’s Teaparty – Robyn Goodwin

Macquarie Editions has partnered for many years with scans of Robyn Goodwin’s watercolours for book publication. This will be the first exhibition of her work.

Robyn Goodwin is an Australian published children’s author and artist and her Backyard Tales series of picture books are entertaining and boldly illustrated. Robyn’s work in watercolour, pencil and ink encompasses the natural beauty of both animal and plant life that live in and around her backyard. Her stories are bought to life with animals adopting human mannerisms which makes for adventurous storytelling.

“I’m on a mission to introduce my backyard to your blank walls. My art is brightly coloured with delicate detail and welcoming beauty. Australian flora and fauna never ceases to inspire and surprise me. I use my art as a platform to advocate for its protection.

“I’d like for people to look at my paintings and feel happiness. After all an artist doesn’t draw what they see, but what they feel”.

Robyn’s work is showing alongside that of Amalia Alegria-Wolfe and Roland Aronsen at Studio Altenburg in Braidwood from 23rd April to 29th May. The exhibition opens at 6pm on Friday 23rd April, RSVP to the gallery.
