Robin Crouch – painter and co-owner of Herringbone Gallery – took a twenty-year break from making art to work on building up a web and graphic design company while helping raise a family.
Now that the HerringBrats are all old enough to drive, Robin has returned to painting with a vengeance, finally putting that Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from York University to good use.
Determined to find the beauty in scenes others might not find beautiful, Robin is irresistibly drawn to back streets, abandoned buildings and desolated country lanes.
With his son and painting-partner-in-crime, Foster, Robin roams the Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia looking for the next underappreciated view. No hunk of rusty metal, storm-battered siding or curious architectural choice escapes their notice.
