Robin Brownfield is a former sociology professor in Collingswood, New Jersey who turned to art after becoming disabled. She has created murals, garden walkways, and countless other mosaic works. Touted as one of the best mosaic artists in New Jersey by Best of NJ magazine, she was featured in a FOX-29 (Philadelphia) News report because she was commissioned by Tamika Palmer to do a mosaic portrait of her daughter, Breonna Taylor, whose death, in part, launched an international movement for justice for victims of racist murders. That portrait can be seen in the new documentary “Bree Way: Promise Witness Remembrance.” Brownfield has also worked as an organizer for the United Farm Workers, a labor journalist, has written and performed in musicals in NYC, is a community activist, and occasionally writes for various sci-fi entertainment websites.
Currently, she is supervising a community mosaic mural project that she designed at Thomas Sharp Elementary School in Collingswood, NJ.
