Cincy is Creative: Robin Ewers Carnes makes a living with stickers, wine-and-paint & dripping eyes

CINCINNATI - Cincinnati and the greater Tri-State region are home to people who excel in artistic and other creative disciplines. Each week, we focus on a creative individual who is bringing new perspectives to our lives and enriching our cultural diversity.

You don’t have to live in New York to make it as an artist. Just ask Robin Carnes, the vivacious, newlywed artist who is already well known by her maiden name Robin Ewers.

While working full-time as a graphic designer, Carnes is energetically pursuing her dream of earning a living from her art. She sells prints of her work at art festivals in Mt. Adams, Oakley, and the open-studio nights at Brazee Street Studios. Each Christmas Robin is busy creating hand-drawn family portraits from photographs. Right now, she is working on a nursery room wall mural for expectant parents.

Become a WCPO Insider to learn about Carnes' wine-and-painting parties and how she combines art and commerce to make a living.
