Robyn Packham (b. 1997, Gibraltar) is a painter based in Herefordshire, she graduated with First-Class Honours for her BA in Drawing and Print in 2020 (Bristol). In 2021 she was awarded the Vice Chancellor’s Painting Prize and a unique residency at Dumfries House in Scotland through the Royal Drawing School.

Robyn Packham specialises in drawings and paintings which draw from nature and human experience. Her work is rooted in drawing from life in sketchbooks, gathering observations and memories to form ethereal, transient scenes that resonate with the passing of the seasons and new life. She is inspired by the vivid stories that can be discovered in mythology, folklore, and archaeology, and translates these to paintings with a dreamlike quality, that challenge us to open our eyes to the richness of the human condition.
