ROBIN BARNSTEAD-LONG: Executive Assistant by Day, Creative Explorer by Nights (And Weekends)

Meet this week’s Featured Creative…

A California-transplant to Oregon at a young age, Robin feels right at home in the Pacific Northwet and lives in north Portland with her husband, Jason, and her two cats, Cagney & Lacey.

By day, Robin is an Executive Assistant-Extraordinaire in a financial/school environment; by night (and weekends), she creates. Common mediums used include polymer clay, felt, paint, and paper. Encouraged by friends and family, Robin took the leap and joined Arte Soleil as her 2018 resolution to promote her creative-self. In her creativity is where she finds her center, solace, and calm. And after a day of herding cats, who couldn’t use a little calm?

You can shop Robin’s funny and inspirational wooden magnets at the Arte Soleil Shoppe! She’s always trying out new ideas so check back often to see what she’s been creating.
