About the Artist

Dr. Robin Davisson’s career is as interesting, unpredictable and exciting as her abstract expressionist paintings.

Robin started her professional life as a biomedical scientist in the field of molecular physiology. Her work over nearly three decades contributed in major ways to our understanding of the control of the circulation in health and diseases such as high blood pressure, heart failure and obesity. She was honored with many major national and international awards by her scientific peers and was an endowed professor at Cornell University.

Throughout this award-winning career, Robin’s passionate avocation was fiber art, including spinning, natural dyeing, knitting and weaving.

Eventually, the pull of art was irresistible and Robin decided to close her research laboratories to devote her efforts completely to abstract painting. She is an alumna of multiple programs at The Penland School as well as numerous other online and in-person art courses.

Robin’s lyrical, process-driven work is rooted in eclectic curiosity, her scientific training and the material surprises she discovers working with her finely-developed visual vocabulary. Her debut gallery exhibition opens in May, 2021 at Calloway Fine Art in Georgetown, Washington, DC.
