“Shades of Pink” by Bobbin Salisbury

 

 

 

Bobbin Salisbury’s creativity was encouraged from an early age and continued through high school and college, where she won awards for her artwork.  Later, when family and work obligations came first, Bobbin still insisted on packing her paints so she could capture the ocean and nature scenes around her on vacations.  Those subjects frequently pop up as her subjects.

 

 

 

“The Green Bridge” by Bobbin Salisbury

 

By attending classes and workshops taught by nationally recognized  artists, Bobbin discovered that she still had her artistic talent and she started painting again. Bobbin tells The Rickie Report, “I now paint every day in my home studio in addition to teaching watercolor classes.”  She became involved in local Art Societies and began her new journey, entering exhibits and even setting up a tent to sell her art at local communities events.  

 

 

 

“Anchors Aweigh!” by Bobbin Salisbury

 

 

Those small steps led to bigger ones, as she immersed herself in the Wellington Art Society and found the camaraderie and networking supportive. Bobbin says, ” Many Artists have great talent but are afraid to use it or even show it. This little seed started to grow… and I started teaching – first to friends, and family. Then I was approached by a local art gallery owner to see if I could teach watercolor”.  She said “Yes” and the seed bloomed!

 

 

 

“Finding My Heart” by Bobbin Salisbury

 

 

Bobbin widely exhibits her work and has won numerous distinguished awards, her work is in collections throughout the country. For more information please visit www.bobbinsartwork.com.

 

 “Teaching the arts”, says Bobbin, “gives me great personal and professional satisfaction. I offer an online, virtual Watercolor school, “Recolor Your World” (www.RecolorYourWorld.comwhere I work with beginning, intermediate and advanced classes to aspiring artists”. Presently Bobbin is working on writing and illustrating children’s books with the help and inspiration from her grandchildren.

Bobbin, originally from New York, has an Associates Degree in Art from Nassau Community College and also studied art at Mallory University.  She has attended classes and workshops in New York and Florida.  She has painted all her life, first in oil and now in watercolor and acrylics after her three year old ruined a number of oil paintings.  She loves painting things in nature: flowers, ocean and trees and never goes anywhere without her paints, brushes and lots of paper!  She enjoys realistic painting but continues to evolve into her own style, trying new products and techniques to produce colorful abstract works.

Bobbin is a Signature Member of the Palm Beach Watercolor Society and the Wellington Art Society.  She participates in all of their exhibits as well as others, including on line competitions.

Bobbin is a well known local watercolor and acrylic artist. She began as a self taught artist but later studied at the Armory Art Center, the Women of Visual Arts (WITVA) Studio in Delray Beach, private lessons and workshops with well-know artists.

 

Bobbin's "Water Lily", inspired by a trip to the

Bobbin’s “Water Lily”, inspired by a trip to the NY Botanical Gardens’ Monet Exhibit

 

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's "Docked"

Bobbin’s “Docked”, inspired by the Boat Dock in Montauck, NY

 

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's "Silly Selma"

Bobbin’s “Silly Selma”

Bobbin illustrated a book with Deborah Desser Herchan, “Mumbo Jumbo” (seen below) and has authored and illustrated her own book, “Silly Selma” (seen above).  She is working on the next book in the “Silly Selma” series.

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.

 

"Fractured Palms" by Bobbin Salisbury

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.
