Born to an inter-ethnic, biracial family whose members represent various religions, economic classes, and levels of educational achievement, Robin Holder also lived abroad for five years as a young adult, in three different counties. She uses a range of printmaking techniques, painting, drawing, and mixed materials to explore how diversity plays out in American culture, and create art that promotes understanding among people with dynamically different identities.
“Colleges do not train students to finance and administrate their careers. The art market and art world have dramatically changed. I would love to participate in an interactive artistic community to learn and develop entrepreneurial strategies that lead to the branding, marketing, promoting, and selling of art ... I want to collaborate in a think tank in which artists are committed to being agents for their own prosperity.”
