About the Artist​​

Roberta (Bobbi) Sorensen

Roberta (Bobbi) Sorensen began studying art at Mount San Antonio College near Los Angeles in the 1960s, earned BA in Art Education from the University of Maryland, and a Master’s Degree in Political Science from the George Washington University, Washington, DC. One of the works created at the U of MD was purchased by the University for its permanent collection.

After graduation, disappointed to learn that there were too many Art teachers, she joined the job market in an area different from that which she planned. Bobbi worked on Capitol Hill and as Executive Director of a number of health-related organizations during her career in DC and NY. During these years she limited herself to doing occasional charcoal portraits, and designing and producing association newsletters.

Bobbi semi-retired in 2014, moved to SC, and in 2017 joined the Crooked Creek Art League. She has served as Secretary of the Board, and as Chair of the Fall Juried Show at Still Hopes in 2019 and takes advantage of the League’s diverse workshops. After finally setting up a home studio and picking up a brush, Bobbi entered and won two awards in the 2018 Annual Juried Show, Third Place Amateur in the 2019 Annual Juried Show, Third Place in the 2020 Still Hopes Exhibition. First Place Amateur in the 2020 Annual Juried Show, and 3rd Place Masters in the 2021 Annual Juried Show. She recently set up a website and has begun...albeit slowly…selling paintings and giclee prints, and 2021 has been targeted as the year she will jettison most of her consulting side business and focus more intently on painting. When asked to describe her philosophy toward painting, she simply says that “It is never too late”.
