Inside The Home Studio Of Columbus Artist Aminah Robinson

Many visitors to Aminah Robinson’s small house said that you could barely move inside. Every room, every surface, was covered in artwork, books, and found objects. She slept on the living room couch. Robinson worked in a variety of media each day. She would start at four in the morning painting watercolor studies in the basement, then sewed cloth tapestries in the living room, and later illustrated her journals in her writing room, the size of a closet. Neighbors would bring her buttons, cloth, and other materials that she would weave into art for her community and the world.
