Play Name That Saint!

Scottish born of Polish parents, Krystyna (Cristina) Renata Robbins received her degree in Commercial Art from the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City. Krystyna’s work mirrors her rich and diversified life experiences. She began oil painting in Carmel, CA studying with noted portrait artist Jessy Corseau and Harriet Mayland, California seascape artist. After moving to the Southwest, her passion turned to capturing the charm of historical structures bathed in southwestern light as well as depicting the European scenes she knows so well. Her work is recognized for its composition and her use of color, depth and light to create moods. She prefers to work in oil for its flexibility and richness. Krystyna’s award-winning paintings have been exhibited in juried shows and galleries throughout the Southwest and are part of private and corporate collections world wide. She conducts workshops in the Southwest or by invitation throughout the country. Her work may be viewed on her website:
