Robbi Firestone is a creative force who refuses to accept labels. Her brave oil portraits capture the sitter’s physical image, his or her inner beauty, and harbor an imbedded, intuitive letter from the artist that describes, “the Beauty I See in You.” Her daily process may include writing, vision journaling, singing, or ecstatic dance.
Firestone has performed onstage at Carnegie Hall, Benoroya Hall, and the Grand Ole’ Opry. Previous sitters include Dr. Michael Beckwith from the groundbreaking film, “The Secret,” three-time Grammy Award winner Keb’ Mo’, “The Father of Human Potentiality,” Michael Murphy, Co-Founder of Esalen Institute, and lead singer Bart Millard from the chart-topping band MercyMe.
Firestone’s passion is to inspire women to live more authentic, self-expressive lives every day. Her philanthropic efforts include featured speaker or emcee for Institute of Noetic Sciences, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Friends of the Children, and Women Helping Women, among others. Additionally, Firestone served on the Board of Trustees of the Hollywood Arts Council. She donates over 3% to charity.
Firestone attended Parsons, Fashion Institute of Technology, Glazier Atelier, and Pasadena Art Center. She designed graphics in New York City and then committed her creativity to Hollywood media. Along with her passion for anthropological adventure, Firestone is a Reiki Practitioner and a Licensed Spiritual Practitioner (RScP).
My mother died of cancer when I was three years old, provoking a survival-oriented curiosity around spirituality, world religions, and philosophies. As a portrait artist, my focus is to capture one’s inner life and the infinite mystery of an individual on his or her human journey.
If you could squeeze inside my heart and take a peek around, it would look and feel just like this…the most divine, sacred space I can imagine. Here, I feel most loved-up, relaxed, creative, and powerful. It’s an environment that feeds me, inspires me. My hope is that you have an equally luscious place for yourself, or are creating one. If not, I hope my studio inspires you. Welcome!
