  • 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:

  • 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."

  • Ashley Rek

    Ashley has always appreciated and loved art since she could remember. Coloring books and crayons were her forte until she got older and started to truly appreciate the art of creating. At the age of twelve she started to take art lessons with a local artist of Oxford, Connecticut, and continued these lessons all throughout high school and even during her months off from college. She attended Salve Regina University in Newport Rhode Island, graduating in 2015 with a Bachelor's in Studio Art and a minor in Spanish. Though starting off using only pastels, during her years in college she was introduced to the world of oil painting and there was no turning back. While at school, Ashley found that she was inspired most by animals and the natural world, creating a senior thesis based solely on these muses. After graduating she began to experiment with acrylics and learned how to have fun with color as much as possible, considering blues, reds, yellows, and burnt sienna were the only colors allowed throughout her four years of college. Ashley has a true love for painting, nature, pop culture, and movies, especially animated ones. (She even spent a few months down in Orlando working for Mickey Mouse himself.) Through Muse Paintbar she hopes to bring the joy and relaxation she feels while she paints to those who come ready to create and have fun!
