Robin Elizabeth Lieske has been a professional artist, creating originals and working in fine art printmaking, for over 30 years. She has an extensive history in exhibition and loves nothing more than to share an image.
Robin is a firm believer in the "democracy of the print" and wants people to have access to her art in whatever form they choose and at a price they can afford. She would define herself as a fine artist with the instincts and sensibilities of a printmaker.
Robin's art business, MoonLogic Press, has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that she stands behind the quality and value of her products.
"I love to reflect on what’s going on beneath the surface and attempt to portray it in the environment surrounding the figures or objects in my art. It’s the symbolic story that matters."
"Having been a fine art printmaker for many years before getting into oil painting, I’m intrigued by the use of textures and graphic elements that create a feeling of transparency and layering in the work."
"The best things for me have always taken place in London where a storybook won first prize at the London Book Fair and where I got into a wonderful, competitive art show a few years later."
I've drawn since I could hold a pencil and began formal training at nineteen while working in illustration and metal design. Commercial work came easily and was needed, so I tended to gravitate to teachers to gain specific skills rather than credits. My first real teacher was the now famous Western photographer, Jay Dusard, at Prescott College in northern Arizona.
After moving to Phoenix at twenty six and signing up for drawing classes, I came upon a deserted printing press in the Graphic Arts department at a local college. Printmaker Mirta Hamilton was head of the Art Department there at the time and was good enough to work with me in extended studio sessions to learn the fine art of Intaglio, Monotype and Monoprint printmaking. And there was just something about that elegant machine. For the first time in my life, I felt what it was to be in the right place and doing exactly the right thing. I've loved printmaking ever since.
I continued on to the Graphic Arts department at Arizona State University to study in their downright glamorous printmaking studio, afterward securing my own hand press and setting up shop at home. It was then I founded MoonLogic Press and later co-founded "Red Dog Gallery" in the burgeoning art scene in downtown Phoenix. Since moving back to the beautiful mountains of northern Arizona, and with a body that no longer endured the rigors of printmaking, I've studied painting with contemporary English painter, Paul Abbott, and co-hosted sessions with him and a devoted group of fellow painters in my studio for ten hyper-productive years.
My images come up through dreams or imagination and the process of doing the art is one of benign exorcism to get them out of my head. Being a fine artist with a printmaker's heart, I long to connect my pictures to as many people as they speak to. The most important moments for me are always when supposedly non-art people describe getting one of my images stuck in their own imaginations.
