Salisbury is a self-taught artist and art teacher in Palm Beach County. She began painting and creating art in her childhood but left the art world to work and raise a family. Throughout those busy years, Salisbury sporadically painted and eventually participated in art workshops and classes taught by nationally recognized artists.
“At that point, I discovered I still had my artistic talent and I started painting again,” she said. “I now paint every day in my home studio, in addition to teaching watercolor classes.”
Salisbury widely exhibits her work and has won numerous distinguished awards. Her work is in collections throughout the country. For more information, visit www.bobbinsartwork.com.
Teaching the arts, according to Bobbin, provides a great deal of personal and professional satisfaction. She eventually went on to open an online watercolor school, Recolor Your World (www.recoloryourworld.com) where she teaches beginning, intermediate and advanced classes to aspiring artists.
Presently, Salisbury is working on writing and illustrating children’s books with the help and inspiration from her grandchildren.
