Stronk is a 1975 graduate of the N.Y. State College of Veterinary Medicine at Cornell. Her practice career has run the full gamut from large to mixed to small animal settings. In addition she did a stint teaching veterinary technicians at Quinnipiac University and worked as a track veterinarian at Hinsdale Greyhound Park.
During a veterinary career that extends over thirty years, she has always had a deep need to study and produce artwork. Through classes at the River Gallery School in Brattleboro, VT, she has refined her technique and focus resulting in gallery representation.
Robin has had the honor of having her work (“Feather” 3/15/97 and “The Dispute” 2/15/00) featured as cover art for the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association. “Eyes on the Future”, a commission for the Veterinary Scholarship Trust of New England, was her third cover on Oct. 1, 2008. In addition, she has received Judges Awards at the International Exhibition on Animals in Art at the Louisiana State Veterinary College in 2003 and 2006 for “Dakota” and “Lay or Bust.”
Robin lives in Southern New Hampshire with her husband where they have raised their three children. Robin and John were the sole owners of Windham Veterinary Clinic in Brattleboro, VT for 23 years. She now concentrates her time on her art, writing, and frolicking with cats as much as possible.
