Robin Nuse works realistically in pastels and oils. She works primarily in her studio, using her own photographs as inspiration for her subject matter. Light and color play an important role in much of her work. Her subjects range from barns and farms to skaters and figures in action in the landscape. She maintains studios in her home in Hanover, New Hampshire and at a retreat on a former dairy farm in northern Vermont.
Robin Nuse has a BFA from Rhode Island School of Design, and an MA from Goddard College. She has studied at the Vermont Studio School, the Washington D.C. Studio School, and privately with Carroll Jones, Jr. of Stowe, Vt. In her early years she studied with her grandfather, Roy C. Nuse, a Pennsylvania Impressionist painter and former teacher at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts.
Robin’s work has been selected for juried shows throughout New England, most recently she received an honorable mention in the Land, Light, Air and Water show at Bryan Memorial Gallery in Jeffersonville, Vt. In 2007 she was awarded the Art Times Award at the Pastel Society of America’s 30th Annual exhibition.
