Meet The Artist: Robin Marsh

Veteran TV journalist Robin Marsh loves sharing people's stories on KWTV News9 every day.  During the pandemic, Robin started painting and fell in love with the creative process of telling stories also through her artwork. She uses color to bring joy to people.

If you look closely… Robin’s artwork here incorporates the motto, “Another Day, Another Opportunity.” Norman native and NBA player Trae Young shares those words on social media daily to guide him to be an elite athlete.

Robin says she found a way to make these art pieces reflect Trae Young’s dedication not only to his sport but to the people who walk through the Young Family Athletic Center.
