Robin Wiltse was born on Vancouver Island BC and grew up on a rural farm in Black Creek. It was while attending The Kootenay School of the Arts in Nelson BC that she learned and was enchanted by the art of felting. Robin brings her love of drawing and illustration into her felt pieces through the combined methods of needle and wet felting.

This artist’s fibre work has been show in many group and juried exhibits around BC. Recently a felting of Robin’s was included in the latest book of the series 500 Felt Objects, representing fibre artists from all over the world. The recipient of many Art Starts Grants, Robin shares her love of art through teaching and has worked with many BC children.

Robin lives with her family in Kaslo and works out of her third floor studio in the Langham Building.
