Hi I'm Robin Dudley Howes aka The Artsy Bohemian. Welcome to my Bohemian happy place! I have been an educator for over 2 decades, guiding individuals to loosen up their creativity and think outside of the box, mostly with unconventional styles of art. I've taught 1000's of students at hundreds of venues in various backgrounds with a goal of not only finishing a project but teaching individuals HOW to be creative.
Since 1997 I have been published dozens of times in well-known magazines (landing the cover of 1) and 3 books. I've been asked to speak about creativity via speaking engagements and podcasts, culminating in a growing social media platform and loyal following. To say I am PASSIONATE about spreading the magic of creativity would be an understatement. I live, eat and breathe creativity EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.
I absolutely love sharing my knowledge, whether it be at cozy home gatherings, large National art retreats or online. It's what I love to do and I'm so grateful to my loyal following and a platform to spread my love of creativity.
