BIOGRAPHY

ROBIN KAPPY received her undergraduate degree from Parsons School of Design. She began her art career in the 1970s as a commercial artist and illustrator for companies such as McGraw Hill, Bankers Trust, TWA and others.  Robin changed her focus when she became a licensed social worker and psychotherapist in 1991. Missing art, in 2006, Robin began participating in continuing education classes and workshops with some of the finest teachers in New York City, including Robert Armetta, David Jon Kassan, Christopher Pugliese, Andy Reiss, Robert Zeller and, currently, Richard Piloco at Chelsea Classical Studio.

Working from life, her drawings and paintings have won awards and appeared in numerous venues, including the National Arts Club in New York City, Fishs Eddy Gallery in New York City, and 61 Main Gallery in Andes, NY. Robin participated in the Hudson River Fellowship in 2013. She has received two honorable mentions in American Artist Drawing Magazine. Her published essays detailing how beauty and the creative process inspire her as an artist and psychotherapist have been very well received. More of her art can be seen on her website.
