“I joined the TEDxNavesink organization because I have always found TED to be educational, creative and inspiring. It is exciting to be part of a team that has big ideas and makes them happen.”
Robin Milne of Freehold Twp., has been an artist and crafter all her life and received a B.S. in Visual Arts. Her passions lie in teaching and demonstrating to encourage people to use new materials, add art and craft into their lives to bring out their creativity. She is able to break down the steps into easy to follow bites that enable all ages to succeed.
Robin has worked in display design, computer graphics and as a model maker for Walt Disney Imagineering. Her photography of artists work has been published in Lark books and art magazines. She has sculpted prototypes for a chocolate/soap mold company. Robin has been working with polymer clay for over 10 years. By teaching children’s classes her skills flourished. In front of the children, Robin was able to try techniques and the results were always satisfactory. She learned to play more and save less and discovered many happy accidents create new techniques. Most of all she learned not to be scared.
Brought up with much encouragement to be creative and think outside the box, Robin was raised in a family of active learners and researchers, was provided with materials and support for all of her interests. Robin and her husband are raising their two children the same way through homeschooling, encouraging them to find the answers to their questions by providing a large library, use of the internet and providing new challenges and experiences.
Robin has been President of the New Jersey Polymer Clay Guild for 8 years and is on the steering committee of the Philadelphia Polymer Clay Guild, 4-H and the homeschool community. She also enjoys quilling, beading and other paper crafts and sells her work online and at local art/craft shows.
