GETTING TO KNOW ROBIN BABITT
I see letters and numbers in color.
Letters are different shades of colors. Numbers are primary colors. In elementary school I saw the alphabet above the black chalkboard as a rainbow. Art class was my ally. Algebra my adversary. I thought everyone saw the alphabet as I did until I learned of a phenomenon that identified me. I have been described as unique, colorful and animated and I could not tell you why.
I learned that having this ability to see letters and numbers in color came through in everything I did and still do. My senses are heightened and what I feel is "my brilliance of normal". I can't imagine my life any other way.
After learning of this phenomenon I realized that it is what led me on an artistic path throughout my life. It directed me to complete many years of art school, become a Needlepoint Artist, Interior Designer, Art Rep and start my own specialty catering company. My passion for art and cooking have allowed me to come full circle and have it all.
My work reaffirms my feeling that we all have the desire to create, interact, with a pinch of fun and a dash of humor.

The thrill of seeing colorful vibrant lights at the holidays, the intense smell of an apple pie baking in the oven, the feel of kneading dough between your fingers or just someone telling you their name and seeing them in color is my brilliance of normal - my everyday Fantasia.
I smell the grayness in storm clouds, appreciate the uniqueness of a snowflake, feel joy on a rainy day and am overwhelmed by the enormity of the ocean. My awareness to all things around me contribute to the palette of my world.
As an adult, I can still smell the aroma of specialty dishes my mother created in the kitchen. I have tried to incorporate those feelings and experiences both in my studio and my kitchen.
Meeting "Alfredo" in Italy in 1969 with my mother brings me back. It takes me to a simpler time when we enjoyed cooking for our families, loved the interaction (well, most of the time), exchanged conversations and laughed with each other and at our mistakes.
My youth is the key to my "whimsical approach" and how I paint, cook and feel about life. Every painting and every dish have their own personalities, all of which are an aspect of me.
It's about loving what you do, enjoying the one you're with, having a good belly-laugh every now and again and savoring those moments.
LYRICS IN COLOR IS THE ARTISTIC CIRCLE OF MY SOUL. MUSIC, ART AND COOKING ALLOW ME TO CREATE A "WHIMSICAL TWIST" TO LIFE.
LIFE SHOULD BE COLORFUL,
LIFE SHOULD BE FUN,
LIFE SHOULD BE DANCED WITH,
LIFE SHOULD BE SUNG.
LIFE SHOULD BE PAINTED AND PREPARED FOR AS WELL,
LIFE SHOULD BE DELICIOUS WITH A STORY TO TELL.
