Aminah Brenda Lynn Robinson, Fiber Artist

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.
