Artist Profiles » Robyn Barclay

Robyn BarclayRobyn was bought up in the Waikato and has a background in teaching and interior design. She studied with a professional artist from 1991 for 5 years and in that time devoloped her own way of painting.She has now been painting full time since 1998.

Robyn’s style is impressionist and she loves to express herself with flamboyant colour.

For many years Robyn and Wayne travelled to Tuscany and France to savour the atmosphere of the hill top towns with vistas of lavender fields, sunflower meadows and of course vineyards dotted with ochre coloured buildings. They would paint their overseas experiences upon their return to New Zealand and when all the paintings were sold they would set off for Europe again.

To pursue a lifelong dream of living amongst vineyards and being close to the sea, Robyn and Wayne bought a piece of land on Waiheke Island about five years ago. They continued to divide their time between Europe and Cambridge where they painted and sold work at their own gallery.

Last year saw the completion of the building of their dream home that they designed themselves. The house, which nestles into the landscape, is a series of pavilions connected by glass walkways that flow out to a large deck with amazing views over Putiki Bay.

Each morning Robyn “Goes to work”, her commute is a short walk to the studio she shares with her husband Wayne Sinclair and sets about painting the landscape and vineyards she loves.
