About the Artist

Leslie Robison lives with her husband and two sons in St. Augustine, Florida where she teaches as an Associate Professor at Flagler College. She graduated with a Master of Fine Art Degree from the University of Florida. Robison has exhibited her drawings and videos extensively throughout Florida but has also exhibited across the United States in cities such as Atlanta and Seattle.

Artist's Statement

In her mixed media drawings and video work, Robison examines her multiple identities as academic, mentor, wife, mother, and artist. She uses these often-conflicting demands as fodder for commentary that may read as critical self-reflection and/or institutional critique.
