Heather Robinson has an indiscriminate love of pattern and color, adores the handmade and the accidental, and possesses a great fondness for the imperfect. Beginning her art practice in collage and mixed media, she transitioned to painting to have more control over materials. Robinson studied environmental design and architecture at Texas A&M University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology, which instilled a passion for structure and a fascination with how people decorate their spaces. Her work focuses on the interplay of order and spontaneity. She has worked in San Francisco since 2007.
