We’re back with another instalment of the Draw More Income podcast. This time ’round, Sara McKarney sits down with the indomitable Robin Smith-Peck to talk about her long and storied art career. They chart Robin’s exploration throughout Canada—west to north to east to west—as a printmaker and cultural worker. Along the way they talk about what working creatively means, how to deal with illness, the history of Edmonton’s Society of Northern Alberta Print Artists, and more.
Robin has been working in the Canadian printmaking community for decades and has taught in Alberta, the Northwest Territories, Nunavut, and Newfoundland and Labrador; exhibited internationally; co-founded the Society Of Northern Alberta Print Artists; been inducted into the Edmonton Arts and Culture Hall Of Fame; and, on top of all that, survived cancer. She is a force to reckoned with.
