Chic Spotlight: Artist Robin Ewers
This artist's pencils offer clients personalized touches to their decor, and her paint brushes transform the old into a stylish new. Read on to learn more about this talented Tri-State artist.


Cincy Chic: You master many media, but how did you first feel your passion for art?


Freelance artist Robin Ewers: Honestly, when I was a kid. I always excelled at art class, and when I could draw faster than I could answer a math question, I knew I found my calling.


Cincy Chic: This is for our Interior Design issue, so what part does art play in the design of a space?


Ewers: A big part. You've got to have good composition and know what design elements work with what.


Cincy Chic: From family portraits to fallen soldiers, your works turn memories into art, so what are the benefits of having more personalized pieces incorporated into a space?


Ewers: It turns a house into a home. It makes your space more comfortable. Portraits capture a person in that moment, one we wan031510SPOTLIGHT2.jpgt to remember when the world flies by so fast.


Cincy Chic: What are some of the more interesting works your customers have commissioned you to create?


Ewers: My favorite one is one of a friend and his closest friends as the Last Supper. It took a while to complete, but the look on his face after it was finished made it so worth it.


Cincy Chic: You've taken your creativity off the canvas to solve your own interior design dilemmas. Tell Cincy Chic readers a little more about your adventures in turning your place into your space.


Ewers: I've lived in a few different apartments, and they all have had stark white walls. They hurt my eyes! So instead of painting walls, I've drawn huge paper flowers and hung them. Or it's as simple as painting a table or nightstand, taking something old and using your creativity to turn it into something new. I love DIY projects, and while most of us are on a budget, it's fun to create things with what you have laying around the house. [Follow Ewers' DIY adventures on her blog.]


Cincy Chic: When you aren't holding a pencil or paint brush, what do you like to do to have fun?


Ewers: I love to go out and be social, finding new places to eat great food, going to gallery walks and bustin' a move on the dance floor!


Cincy Chic: What do you love most about Cincinnati?


Ewers: Everything. I've grown up here, and I take pride in saying I'm from Cincinnati. There are so many things to do, but you have to look for them. I like the challenge. The history this city holds is so intriguing. But my favorite thing to do is going to Oktoberfest!
