Robin Page received a BFA cum laude in printmaking from Maryland Institute College of the Art in 2010.
She draws on a large sheets of paper with various types of charcoal and erasers to move between traditional realistic portraiture and exaggerated texture. Subjects are chosen for their distinctive features, which range from beards to bone structure and acne to nose shape.
Her drawings focus and explore aesthetic features of individual faces. It is a personal artistic journey with the aim to discover why and how individual features can assume an iconic quality.
Page has won several honors including most recently a MICA Talent Grant. Her work has been exhibited extensively in Maryland.
