I have taken some art and design courses at both WVU and Fairmont State College, but am primarily self-taught.


About Robert Shobe

As a multi-media artist who uses recycled and upcycled items, I love finding beauty in unexpected places and frequently leverage unique combinations in my design, juxtaposing examples of rustic and contemporary, folk art and modern art, elegance and kitsch. I believe in creating art that is beautiful and evocative but also sustainable, functional, and accessible.


I am a multi-media artist whose work incorporates woodworking and the use of unconventional materials, relying on found, recycled and often living/plant elements, to create art pieces and unexpected but functional design pieces such as lighting and other decorative items.

I have an extensive professional background in interior design, visual merchandizing, and floral design and the influence of all of these experiences manifests in my art work.

After living and working in Columbus, Pittsburgh, and New York for for many years, in 2021, I relocated to my home-town of Petersburg, WV to pursue my life-long dream of being a full-time, self-employed artist using my experience and skill-set to launch my own creative business.
