Miss A Columnist

Rochelle Robinson grew up in the Pacific Northwest immersed in the performance, musical, and fine arts, as well as athletics – from skiing in the water to skiing in the sleet and snow, to cycling around the velodrome. While studying fine art and the musical genre of jazz at the University of Washington she put both her passion for and experience in the arts into helping to create the Washington State Academic Achievement Standards for the Arts by serving on both the Arts and Standards Revision committees. She later completed a Master of Arts in Teaching at The University of Puget Sound and Master of Arts in Liberal Arts at St. John's College Graduate Institute. As an aspiring artist, as well as an educator, she is still intrigued by the creative process and what ensues as a result. Currently, she is developing a poetry blog called A Writer's Space and has co-written both a children's picture book and pilot for a children's TV show. Rochelle also works as an elementary school librarian and advanced reading teacher for a small private school in the valley. She is in the midst of developing a new business named Watercolor Weddings by Rochelle and is developing a series of paintings and conceptual artworks, the first of which is currently on display at Henson Recording Studios in Hollywood. She hopes to inspire Miss A readers to explore, experience and get involved, as she sets out to bring a touch of the literary, fine and performing arts that are happening here in Los Angeles to our readers.

Engage your mind and senses with two enriching experiences this Saturday afternoon or Sunday evening at the Santa Monica Art Studios found in a hanger in the Santa Monica Airport. Celebrate the beauty, strength and struggles of women as you gaze upon the imagery of the current gallery exhibition entitled “Breaking in Two: Provocative Visions of Motherhood,” showing from 12-6pm Tuesday-Saturday until April 14th. This exhibition is curated by Bruria Finkel and explores the idea of artist as mother, a conundrum certainly explored since the women’s liberation movement began in the 60’s, and features works by four generations of nationally and internationally recognized artists who are also mothers. The exhibition is soon to be featured in a documentary called “Breaking in Two,” sponsored and distributed by Women Who Make Movies and produced by Sabine Sighicelli.
