Robin Brownfield of Collingswood, NJ, is a former organizer for the United Farm Workers, and a sociology professor at Rutgers University, Rowan University, and numerous community colleges. She turned to mosaic art after becoming disabled. While she has almost no formal training in art, she has won awards and accolades for her artwork since the age of 9, had a solo show of her charcoal portraits at age 14, has made costumes and props for theater productions, and always has some art project in the works. She has also written musicals, one of which played off Off-Broadway in 2004.
Robin was featured in a FOX-29 (Philadelphia) News report in 2020, because after sharing a series “Black Lives Matter” mosaic portraits online, she was commissioned by Tamika Palmer to do a mosaic portrait of her daughter, Breonna Taylor, whose death, in part, launched a rebirth of the Black Lives Matter movement. That portrait can be seen in the documentary “Bree Way: Promise Witness Remembrance.”
Robin’s award-winning artwork has been in galleries in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, New York City, Long Island, Las Vegas, Norfolk, Virginia, Texas, Illinois, and San Francisco. She recently finished supervising a community mosaic mural project entitled “Childhood Memories,” that she designed at Thomas Sharp Elementary School in Collingswood, NJ.
