Although primarily self taught in figure and portrait painting, Robin Hicks attended a few small groups and some private lessons in oil and watercolour. She’s worked as an illustrator for the SA Museum, Adelaide University and private businesses over the years and has completed a number of commissions as well as solo and group exhibitions. Robin has developed a love of teaching and sharing her knowledge in watercolour and art in general and will soon teach portrait and figure drawing and painting.
Robin has received a number of awards over the past few years, including the Royal Adelaide Show Art Prize, Stationmaster’s Gallery, Clare Rotary, Peterborough Art Show, RSASA and others. She was a finalist in the 2019 RSASA portrait prize.
