Born in Japan and raised in Colorado, Rob grew up sketching and painting people in native landscapes. His parents’ eastern influence fueled his passion for art and culture, a foundation he continues to draw upon daily. Rob attended Colorado State University for a bachelor degree in Graphic Design and then the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston for graduate studies in studio arts. Upon returning to Denver in 2007 he promptly began expressing himself through abstract painting. Around 2014 he started exhibiting his most current abstract figure work using all of his past experience in drawing, painting, multimedia and design to create the imagery you see today.
