There are not many times when you come across an artisan who exhibits such passion for her culture and her work. I find this to be alive and well in Aminah Brenda Lynn Robinson. Her soulful connection to the tradition of African textiles is a powerful expression of the things that are important in her life.
I am more fortunate than most that I live in Ms. Robinson’s home town of Columbus, Ohio, where her storytelling through art is legendary. With the help of her close friend, Xenobia Bailey, we get a glimpse of the creative environment that inspires Ms. Robinson, her sanctuary. We are so blessed to have her. For Aminha’s story and a timeline of her art go to Aminha’s World.
