The Ohio Artist Registry (OAR) is an exciting opportunity for artists to share their work, connect with the creative community, and establish an online presence—all on a free, virtual platform! The OAR encourages artists working in all art forms, throughout Ohio and beyond,  to create a profile, which allows them to better promote themselves and their work. Being listed in the OAR provides artists with new opportunities to share their work with clients, galleries, patrons, and audiences. A listing in the OAR does not confer an endorsement, approval, or verification by the Ohio Arts Council.

Born and raised in Italy, Robie was the first in her family to graduate from college, and she earned an MBA from the University of Venice, Italy.

In 2010, she relocated to Columbus and embraced her passion for art, painting every day and furthering her education in art.

Robie creates vibrant artworks using watermedia paint and mixed media, such as paper, ink, markers, and fibers. Her work is characterized by the inclusion of patterns and marks that the artist creates with her hand-cut designs.

Her work has been exhibited in several shows all over Ohio and is in private collections in the United States, in Spain, and in Italy.

She is the recipient of three grants from the Greater Columbus Arts Council and has been an artist in residency at the Grange Insurance Audubon Center and in Padua, Italy.

Examples of her work can be found on her website and at Marcia Evans Gallery in the Columbus Short North Art District.

One of her paintings “The Colosseum” is featured on a mural in the Short North.

Robie works as the Art Coordinator at The Ohio State University Faculty Club.

Artist Statement

My work reflects my attraction to the unpredictability of life, and the uncontrollable, ever-evolving nature of its moments.

I seek to capture the tension between the unpredictability of life and the desire for control.

My process involves a combination of spontaneity and restraint, where I work intuitively with the elements of the painting, allowing the colors and shapes to organically form while I strive to maintain a sense of cohesiveness.
