ROBIN VENECIA

Robin Venecia is the artist behind Venecia Art. I was born Robin Elaine Spangler in Bowling Green,(Ohio) in 1968. I married Juan Venecia in 1987 and moved to Kenedy (Tx) where I raised four children. I'm a self taught Artist and specializes in mixed media paintings, collage and assemblage. Although humor and brightness abound in my work it all has a certain darkness as well. I attribute this to the death of her father at the tender age of 8, which set me on a path with depression that i have wrestled with on throughout my life. I use my art to battle through the melancholy. I have many inspiration but a love of Mexican folk art, particularly Dia de los Muertos. with its bright colors and Macabre images is at the forefront. I also draws from historical and scientific mysteries and oddities as well as good old wives tales.
