Robin Yeh is a student at Duke University from New York. She will recieve a B.A. in Visual Arts B.A., and is currently a marketer for the Innovation Co-Lab. After graduation, she wil be working in Atlanta, GA.

Robin is a visual artist who works primarily in oil paintings. She also likes to work in marker and (India) ink. She likes to create artwork with lots of color and iridescence. Her subjects are typically people. People are more interesting than any object or place-- both in physical appearance and their history. She likes to draw/paint portraits of people who are prominent in her life at the time, and her progression of portraits from high school to now highlights different periods of her life. Though her paintings are more traditional, she love being able to invent new ways of drawing.
