About Hilda’s Artwork

HILDA ROBINSON lives and paints in Oakland, California.

Her colorful, vibrant oil pastels are based in everyday glimpses of African Americans at play and leisure, at home, at school, and at church. Her art is deeply rooted in African-American traditions of celebration, storytelling, and humor, with a glowing transcendence that embraces the joys of life found in families and communities everywhere.

Her artistic talents were first nurtured at the young age of three when her father presented Hilda with her first box of paints. As a young adult, she studied painting at the Tyler School of Fine Arts at Temple University, and completed her BA and MA studies in art at UC–Berkeley.

Robinson has received the prestigious Jan Hart-Schuyers Merit Award through the “Art of Living Black” exhibitions at Richmond Art Center, as well as the Atlanta Life Insurance Purchase Award.

    • Thanks, Jeff. I agree! Jazzy, impressionistic paintings.

      We’re trying hard to get the word out. As a small indie press, we have so tiny a marketing budget for so wonderful a book.
