Robyn Church Hatton grew up in an artistic family and built on that foundation by pursuing an international education in the arts. Her grandmother, Peggy Pond Church, a prominent southwestern poet and writer, and her mother, a visual artist, were both intimately involved with the renowned Taos Art Colony in New Mexico. Profoundly influenced by the artists of the Taos Art Colony, especially Victor Higgins, Gustave Baumann and Olive Rush, Robyn gained an intimate understanding of and appreciation for the diversity, individuality, and history of art and its makers through her unique childhood experiences which included art classes, art shows, visiting artist friends in their studios and on location, and working in her family’s home studio. During her high school years, Robyn’s influences expanded to include studies of the works of the Masters, formal British art instruction, as well as instruction by individual European artists in the Netherlands. Robyn’s artistic education is ongoing, including forays into bronze lost-wax casting, encaustic, and studies of various American and European techniques.
