Hey, I’m Roben-Marie!

I’m a full-time mixed media artist, business builder, home baker, tech nerd and beach lover with a heart for helping my fellow creatives learn and grow.

My studio is my happy place, where you’ll find me playing with TONS of different mediums to create my signature layered collages and handmade art journals. (Yes, it gets messy in there.)

Creativity helps me express myself, find my authentic voice, and let the wild and fierce side of my soul run free.

That’s why I started The Roben’s Nest– because I want that for you, too! I hope you’ll join us for the journey.

Cheers,
Roben-Marie

In Their Own Words...

TRN New Logo Nest SQ

"I enjoy the accessibility to you, the way that we do, and just being able to hang out and enjoy each other's company. You're so generous in sharing and giving with your knowledge and input and insight. It's a very comfortable, cozy group...I feel very comfortable here." -Jeanine Christensen"

"Roben-Marie's relaxed style of teaching is very appealing. She helps me "Go with" the imperfections in my art, which makes the process so much more enjoyable, playful, and fun." -Nancy Tracy

"Thank you from my heart for showing up for the calls, for all the background preparations, for the follow-up and so much more you are investing to spread this necessary creative time." -Karin Hergert

"My experience has been great. I'm part of a few groups but this is the one I enjoy the most and where I feel the most comfortable. I love the monthly projects but most of all the hangout sessions. The Nest hangouts have a super cozy feeling...like you're hanging out with friends. Roben-Marie is very accessible and doesn't make us feel like she's doing us a favor being there." -Emma S.

"Roben-Marie has brought so much joy to my art making. The videos are so thorough and detailed. I've learned so much. Attending the live “Nesting Sessions” and meeting so many artists on the same path from other localities and having the opportunity to ask questions about art techniques and supplies has been a blessing to me.”
-Penny Corbin

"I really like your warm, welcoming style and your generosity in sharing your skills with us. I love the projects and appreciate that you are open to input from us on what we’d like to see in the future. I love all the ideas I’m getting from more experienced artists. I’m really learning a lot! -Stacey Vicari

"I’ve never been part of a membership like this before and  everyday I am grateful for all that I’ve received from it.

What I didn’t expect to receive is the feeling of belonging I have every time I’m sharing or commenting on posts with the other Nesters. To know that others are interacting with my posts and asking interesting questions or giving suggestions and providing amazing support - that is what makes this membership incredible.  My art practice has grown with so much shared learning and I am gaining confidence to show others that yes, I am an artist. 

So thank you,  Roben-Marie, for your passion, knowledge, innate loveliness, and all-out hard work to make this membership an incredible experience. You have blown away all my expectations and given me a lovely community to ‘play’ with." -Diana Ivers
