This biography from the Archives of AskART:

ROBERT ( 'Robbie' ) WHITNEY COLLINS (1976-  )

Robbie grew up in the San Francisco Bay area, and early on was inspired as an illustrator, painter, photographer, and musician.  In his teens, he lived and studied in France, sketching cityscapes, historic ruins, as well as rural landscapes.  In the Lake Tahoe region of Nevada, he would sketch and create watercolor paintings, with encouragement from his art professor grandfather.

Collins continued his study of art at the University of Virginia, with an emphasis on architectural design, and he found inspiration in the local landscape as well as historic structures such as Thomas Jefferson's home, Monticello.  A summer semester spent studying music at Berklee College of Music in Boston gave him additional exposure to colonial buildings.

His Virginia art subjects included watercolors of rural landscapes, residential drawings, as well as paintings of wildlife, such as the foxes he observed from his cabin on a wooded farmland.  Traveling from Virginia in a vintage Land Rover, he drove the Al-Can highway to Alaska, and his works in pen and ink from those years reveal a keen observation of the environment and weather there.  In 2005 he relocated to New York City, where he performed his music, while also creating artworks.  Urban subjects have included bridges, river views, and street scenes.

In 2007 he settled in Marin County, California, and has been actively painting in oils, primarily plein air, throughout the plentiful variety of environs.
