Robyn  Rankin

About the Artists:


After graduating from Swinburne University, Rankin’s early career began in Melbourne as a graphic designer and photographer. Photographic assignments for the travel industry took her round Australia and New Zealand. Rankin later taught art and photography at Methodist Ladies’ College. A move to Noosa with her young family provided the opportunity to change direction, and a love affair with paint began in 2000.

Rankin is well represented in private collections in Australia and overseas, and is featured in the recent publication by Michael Berry, “Selective Contemporary Artists of Australia.”

“I love photography...the idea of freezing a moment in time. I love being able to store images and memories, and honour our capacity to reflect on those treasures. I steal the moment and make it happen again with paint...these are the cherished images of a time when life is uncluttered and free.”
