April Lavely-Robinson

April Lavely-Robinson is a Colorado Springs native. April graduated from Tesla EOP in 2003. She is currently studying Graphic Design & Illustration at PPCC.  You can find her published illustrations in The Changing Story by Ahriana Platten.

April’s art is best known for its dreamlike style and sepia color palettes. She gathers inspiration from nature, folklore, memories, and life experiences. Her work combines both traditional and digital mediums. April begins her process with a detailed graphite pencil drawing on paper. Using a scanner, she extracts the drawing into an image editor program. She then digitally paints with a stylus to create a hybrid piece of art.

When she’s not creating she enjoys spending time with her two children and husband, watching movies, reading, and antique rummaging.
