episode fourteen | jenny robinson

In this episode of pine|copper|lime Miranda speaks with Jenny Robinson about her childhood growing up in Borneo and when the colours and warmth of the equator came to an abrupt end after her was shipped off to a Catholic boarding school in England. While that displacement may have been the greatest culture shock of her life, globe-trotting remains a big part of who she is. She spent years in her twenties traveling around India and Southeast Asia, and doing it all solo after ditching her ex-boyfriend at the Bombay train station two weeks into the trip. Robinson also talks about her deep printmaker pride, her love of paper and inks, and goes into detail as to how she developed a drypoint method which allows her to work very large and on a budget.
