Robyn Scott is a painter, illustrator, teacher, and poet who has called Yellowknife home since 2007.
She is most passionate about realistic paintings of northern wildlife using oils and acrylics, and she has a particular affinity for creating images of birds of all kinds. She is also known for her whimsical pen and mixed-media “Heartwork” drawings. Robyn particularly enjoys doing large-scale projects and has completed murals for organizations such as the NWT Creative Collective, Dead North Film Festival, and the Rainbow Coalition of Yellowknife.
A lifelong artist, Robyn most recently spent the summer of 2019 studying at the Sunbury Shores Art Centre in St. Andrews, NB, and The Academy of Realist Art in Boston, MA. For several years, Robyn developed and taught a middle school art program for YK1. She was also a finalist in the 2019 Art Battle competition in Yellowknife.
When she is not painting, Robyn is busy in her role as president of NorthWords NWT, a non-profit northern literary society, as well as teaching at Aurora College, performing poetry at open-mic events, and raising her two daughters.
