Roberta "Bobbi" Soresen
Roberta (Bobbi) Sorensen began studying art at Mount San Antonio College near Los Angeles in the 1960s (yes, Art School in LA in the 60’s…it was hard to see through the haze) earned an undergraduate degree 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 M was purchased by the University for its permanent collection.
After graduation, Bobbi was disappointed to learn that there were too many teachers, especially art teachers, and she had to join the job market in an area different from that which she planned. Bobbi worked for five years on the US Senate Labor Committee, as a registered lobbyist for the College of American Pathologists, and as Executive Director of the Westchester (NY) Academy of Medicine, the Medical Society of Northern Virginia, and finally as COO and Executive Director of the Washington Center for Psychoanalysis, a training institute affiliated with George Washington University. 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, and First Place Amateur in the 2020 Annual Juried Show. She recently set up a website and has begun...albeit slowly…selling paintings and giclee prints. 2021 has been targeted as the year she will jettison most of her consulting side business and focus more intently on painting. It is never too late.
