Hello

My name is Robyn,

and I am the creator who sees things á Travers de Jolis Yeux.

I create watercolor and mixed media paintings which weave trauma into enchanting representations of the unique affairs experienced by humans. With themes like biodiversity, femininity, trauma, and neurodivergence, my work remains cohesive accompanied by a touch of magic in each piece.

When creating from my emotions becomes overwhelming, I dive into escapism, painting magical worlds, people, and creatures. I have always held a love for fantasy genres and this comes through in my escapist artwork. Influenced by anime, myths and fairy tales, and powerful women

I'm interested in creating polarities within these works; the contrast between light and dark, the heaviness of the subject matter and the delicate textures that are created by blooming watercolors. Moreover, when creating art, my goal is to help the viewer see their own darkness through the lens of my creativity, welcoming introspection, and improvement.

Each of my pieces begins as a sketch and recently this process is done digitally to test compositions, perfect linework, and plan color placement. The linework is then printed or transferred to watercolor paper where smooth rhythmic strokes define the lines with the designated color. Translucent layers of watercolor are built up to create detail, definition, and depth. I finish my paintings by perfecting the linework and adding highlights as well as final details to the foreground. Occasionally this process includes pens, colored pencils, or gold-leaf.
