Frequent and long-time Street Art contributor Rene is a sprightly 90-year-old daughter of an architect, who enjoys sketching nature and wildlife, but finds herself instinctively returning to abstract geometric patterns and collage. Arthritis makes the intricate cutting of her earlier, photography-derived compositions inspired by Matisse’s Cut Outs difficult these days. So she has taken to working with simpler shapes, using coloured paper or painting on white paper to create her joyful, spontaneous, playful pieces.

She lives in London and submits her artworks via the 240 Project, a health activity centre for people affected by homelessness and exclusion. She often visits her artist daughter in Norfolk. “She wants me to move there,”saysRene. “But what would I do in Norfolk? I’d be bored. I have all my art groups here. There’s only one bus into town a day. Boring.

Unframed Prints available in sizes A4, A3 & A2

A3 and A4 are printed on 300GSM High Colour Matt Paper

A2 where available, is printed on 200GSM High Colour Gloss Paper

All prints have a bleed space that varies between artworks

Rene Robbins

The daughter of an architect, Rene enjoys working with geometric shapes, line and collage. Following the death of her husband and son, she experienced a period of homelessness. At a low point one of her friends invited her to attend an art project and she has been returning ever since. “There’s always something new to see or learn,” says Rene. She works slowly and patiently due to a degenerative eye condition. Several of her works have been published and sold at exhibitions.
