  • Katie Brinkman

    Katie Brinkman has been creating art since she was old enough to hold a paintbrush. As a child, she quickly discovered she loved making people happy with her gifts and creations. It wasn't until college, however, that she began to do artwork for herself instead of others. Once she realized that art is not about perfection but freedom, and that there is beauty in imperfection, that her art took on new depth. Katie's passion is to help others find joy in painting and to help them discover that art has no rules, limits or boundaries. "I love to see people learning to relax and enjoy the artistic process without stressing out about the imperfections."

  • Robyn Levine

    Throughout Robyn's life, art and dance were the only two outlets that could hone her explosive creative energy. She knew from a young age that art was her calling. Knowing that, she attended the University of Connecticut where she studied art and Illustration. There she had the opportunity to study abroad in Florence, Italy for a semester where she developed her figure drawing skills and displayed her work at a local gallery. The overall experience there left a large impression on Robyn. Art was no longer a personal activity because she realized sharing creative ideas and culture enriches the lives of everyone in a community. After she graduated, she illustrated several children's ESL books, and became a teaching artist. She now works with local communities running art and dance workshops across New England advocating creative self expression. Her mission is to cultivate and grow a love for art in others to enrich their lives the way art has for her. At Muse Paintbar, Robyn invites you all to salute your inner artist and discover how art is truly meant to be shared with one another! Website: www.rlcreative.net
