Robyn Lake

Photo of Robyn LakeRobyn Lake had her first solo exhibition in 1996. She continues to develop her expressive style,painting a variety of subject matter, from intimate close up views of flowers and fruit, to panoramic views of the landscape.Her luscious, sensual paintings reflect her intense love of the land, especially the Okanagan Valley and it's intimate vineyard vistas, and the vibrant colours express her emotional response to her subject matter.
“I focus on the positive things about the world we live in and I try to put this energy into my paintings, regardless of subject matter."
Robyn’s vibrant oil and acrylic paintings have been in numerous solo and group exhibitions and are in collections around the globe.
