Daily Inspiration: Meet Breonna Robinson

Today we’d like to introduce you to Breonna Robinson.

Hi Breonna, we’re thrilled to have a chance to learn your story today. So, before we get into specifics, maybe you can briefly walk us through how you got to where you are today?
I was born to create. Art is literally in my blood. My granddad and aunt were artists. And my mom is an artist. As a child, I always dabbled in different art projects; creating jewelry, sketching, and sculpting with play dough.

It wasn’t until I took an art class in high school, that I became aware of my artistic instincts. In 2011, I attended the Art Institute of Washington to begin my graphic design journey learning about digital art and marketing.

During my time there, I also learned still life drawing, color theory, and composition. In 2016, I transitioned into painting on canvas after attending an art show. I was inspired by all of the artists, and thought to myself, “I can add painting to my art resume.”

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle-free, but so far would you say the journey has been a fairly smooth road?
I have always had the support of my parents and my family. Any time I embraced a new art venture, they invested in me. My challenge is growing art collectors. The goal for CreativeBre™ is for my work to be considered “Art for the Culture;” art that evokes an emotional connection within our community, to be passed down from generation to generation. I am still brainstorming marketing ideas to accomplish this.

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
My brand is CreativeBre™ and I am a celebrity portrait artist. I enjoy creating stories within my paintings that represent that celebrity’s legacy. I am known for my vibrant colors and graphic design style of painting. Meaning, I use a color block technique, where each color in the image is formed by a shape.

Up close, you see how the shapes separate but from a distance, they all blend together. What separates me from other artists is my design style and 3D elements. Making the next painting more complex than the next allows me to challenge myself and internalize my personal accomplishments.

Is there something surprising that you feel even people who know you might not know about?
In 2011, when I enrolled at the Art Institute of Washington, my major was going to be Pastry Chef. I never imagined myself being an artist. Graphic designer, yes. But painter, not so much.
