As a child Bobbin began using oils but later switched to watercolors because of the quick drying time and easy cleanup. Her love of boats and the sea came from her Dad taking her down to the docks and dreaming about owning a boat someday. Her paintings are displayed in the Wellington Community Center and City Hall Gallery. She recently had a three month SOLO exhibit at the Wellington Whole Foods Gallery. She won an honorable mention at the summer Art of Association Exhibit at the Lighthouse ArtCenter in Tequesta.

Bobbin tells The Rickie Report, “The Ocean can bring your senses to a wonderful place. When I feel the sand under my feet, smell the salty air, hear the thunder of the surf, or see the rolling waves, my spirit immediately experiences the peace only nature can give. Through this peace I have been inspired to share my ability to use paint brush, paper, paint & of coarse water to create my artwork. The serenity and peace I feel melts my spirit and my personal peace into all my creations”.

Bobbin teaches Beginning and Intermediate traditional watercolor classes as well as wet on wet techniques in my home, at Jerry’s Artarama in West Palm Beach and at Art & Sea Living Studio.  While she teaches mostly watercolors, she does have a few Acrylic students, learning the basics of painting.

Bobbin also teaches Fun art!  “Paint-A-Party” is class where each student completes a painting in two hours.  She says, ” Come to my classes and you will see. The beauty of the underpainting just creates the most vivid transparencies. The Glazing becomes a natural technique which you can use in any other type of technique!!”  Additionally,Bobbin actively creates ATC (Artist Trading Cards) and Altered Journal books.
