Robinson began painting with watercolors when she received a watercolor set for Christmas as a teenager. Because of its sentimentality, she has never switched over to oils, but she has introduced watercolor on canvas to her chosen media. She received a BA in Communications from The University of Alabama in 1996. For more information, visit www.lashondascottrobinson.com.
