Robert's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped me in transitioning my art business to a more online model.

Robert's story

I am a former college administrator, but continued to educate, and has instructed thousands of adults at over 1000 social painting events. I am also an instructor at the Oak Park Art League in Oak Park, Illinois. My experience as an educator guides my art practice, and I have evolved my style to incorporate learning outcomes as part of the artistic statement of my works. I hopes that my art not only pleases those that see it, but also helps provoke thoughtful discussion and educate the viewers. Rob is a Chicago native who challenges concepts of perception through his artwork. Rob began his practice at a young age, and continued his love of art through his high school and early college experiences. After earning a B.S. in Psychology from Loyola University, Chicago, Rob worked as a media buyer before returning to Loyola University Chicago to earn his M.Ed. in Higher Education Administration. As a college administrator he focused on helping students at risk, and turned to pointillism for positive replenishment. It was not long before he embarked on a career as a professional artist.
