    Resume

    Robyn Cottew is a qualified Interior Designer, whose career has taken many turns.

    Robyn spent six and a half years living in Japan in Yamagata Ken, and in Tokyo. She travelled extensively through Japan during that time and is fascinated by Japanese culture and crafts.

    Robyn set up a webshop www.choose.com.au selling unique and high-quality Japanese designed goods which otherwise don't get global exposure.

    In Tokyo she met Yamamoto Hiromi san, who taught her Japanese Paper Cutting Art. Yamamoto San's style is a unique version of kirigame (traditional paper cutting), and Robyn became an assistant teacher under her guidance.

    Yamamoto San gave Robyn designs that told stories about Japanese culture.

    Robyn has been practising Japanese Paper Cutting art for eight years. She uses Japanese washi paper and chiyogami (patterned paper), coloured paper, fabric, sequins and diamantes.

    Robyn has taken workshops at Malvern Artist's Society, Fuji Tei Restaurant, Wesley College, Kami Japanese paper shop in Fitzroy and Guild of Objects in Collingwood. Her work has been exhibited at the Japanese Consulate in Melbourne, the Japanese Festival in Box Hill, and is currently in Fuji Tei Restaurant. She has a large exhibition coming up at Glen Eira Town Hall gallery from September 12th to 29th.
