ARCHITECTURAL FEATURES and INSTALLATIONS
Robyn has been involed with streetscape and architectural designs since her early days when she painted a mural in Eveleigh Street, Sydney. Her love of creating large public artworks was born then.
Robyn would love to hear from you if you are looking for a unique piece of Australian art to grace a project or development.
In 2015 Robyn was commissioned to design the floor for the Gathering Place at Blacktown Hospital. The floor is constructed using the 15th century Venetian technique of terrazo. Originally this was a way of using up left-over marble chips. The chips were mixed with concrete to make floors that were popular in palaces, villas and temples.
Robyn's design, Peace and Harmony, represents the strong ties of healthy communities.
“Being a cancer survivor, I understand how important is for a hospital to have areas where we can rest, meet friends or families, or just appreciate the arts.”
Her design, Peace and Harmony, complements other artworks in the redevelopment of the hospital.

Bungarribee Community Resource Hub
Robyn was commissioned to design wall panels for the new community centre in Bunya, a Landcom development in Bunya. Her artwork covers the exterior metal coating on three of the main sides of The Hub facade.
Patterns of Place was unveiled to the public on Thursday, December 12, 2013.
The artwork stands about 6.4 metres high and features ghost gum spirits etched into fibre cement panels.
Robyn incorporated ghost gum spirits into the design to protect the building and bring harmony and ‘‘balance’’ to the area.
‘‘The Bungarribee site is steeped in history and it’s only fitting to design a facade that protects this new community gathering place,” she said.
“The creek line which runs through Bunya was an important place for the Warrawarry people.
‘‘The underlying theme of ghost gum spirits pays respect to the culture of these people.”
Arncliffe Public School
In collaboration with Rhiannon Bonfield, Robyn was commissioned to paint a mural at Arncliffe Public School in Sydney in 2013.
Robyn's 2001 painting, Crossing the Blue Mountains, was featured in the Darug Connections display at the Blue Mountains Botanic Gardens at Mt Tomah, NSW. Her painting was used for the cover illustration for the information booklet and in other publications by the Botanic Gardens. Her work has also been used for signage in the gardens.
