I am an artist that has lived in Porirua City all my life. I am primarily a self taught Artist and I paint and draw local landscapes, New Zealand Birds, some life drawing and a small amount of abstract. I paint with oil, acrylic and watercolour and enjoy drawing in Pencil and Charcoal.
My childhood years were spent growing up in Plimmerton and I have now moved back to Camborne to live with my family. I love this area, with the beaches, harbour, inlet and surrounding hills, and have always had a desire to paint them. I now ensure I make time for art in my life.
In my family I am surrounded by Artists. In 2014 I exhibited with my Mother, two aunties and my sister in the Bebe’s Babes exhibition at Pataka. Bebe was my Nana who also painted when she was alive. This was a fantastic exhibition to organize with my family and I thoroughly enjoyed it. We all paint in different styles and so the exhibition was of great interest to many people.
I have taken part in the Pataka Arts Awards over the past 6 years and now have some of my small prints and gift cards of local landscapes available at the Pataka Toi Store, Porirua. 2019 at the Pataka Arts Awards I was awarded the Highly Commended Prize for my painting “Those Hills”- Pauatahanui, Oil Painting. In 2020 I won the People’s Choice award for my “Camborne Boatsheds – Pauatahanui Inlet 2020” painting.
In 2017 I exhibited at the New Zealand Art Show and I am now an exhibitor on their online gallery. http://www.artshow.co.nz/?s=robyn+hall
From 2014-2016 I exhibited as an Artist at the Bay Gallery in Plimmerton. Being involved in this gallery with 5 other local artists was a fantastic experience and I learnt a lot. Sadly this closed in July 2016, so opening my new gallery at Unit 22 2 Northpoint Street has been my latest endeavour.
Richard Young, a New Zealand Landscape Photographer also exhibits at the Robyn Hall Art Gallery which opened Nov 2016.
The Robyn Hall Art Gallery is open Mondays- Wednesdays 10-3pm and Thursdays 1-4pm. And some Saturdays – phone 0272839604 to check.
I would love to have you visit.
If you like the style of my paintings but have something particular in mind that you would like painted, please contact me to discuss a commission. This process usually involves looking at photos you may want me to work from, or looking at photos that I have taken, discussion of size, medium, style, colours, and budget that you want me to work within. I have had many customers satisfied with the work I have produced for them.
