iphone self portrait

Mia Robinson "Self-Portrait as Paula Rego"  2009

Mia Robinson (b.1979) is one of the growing number of artists using digital apps as a way of creating their artwork. This piece was sketched after the artist spent time poring over the artwork of Portuguese-English artist Paula Rego...and something in the alertness, strength and almost confrontational aspect of the pose does hint at that artist's unique "flavor." Robinson, currently based in  Washington, D.C., has exhibited her work internationally. Her website can be found here.
