About Ronni:
My name is Ronni Nicole Robinson. I was born and raised in Philadelphia, PA and now live here with my husband, cat, and dog. I am a self-taught artist with a graphic design background. As someone who shies away from attention, I wanted to create something that reflects my own personality. My work embodies the perfect balance of understated beauty and simple design. I didn’t want to create something loud that would distract from the soul of the home when hung on the wall.  I wanted my art to speak in soft tones and exist humbly in the background.
