What people are saying about Artist /Owner Roberta Ahrens at Roberta Ahrens Studios

Martha Lee
Founder/Principal, Get In Position
“I’ve known Roberta for over twelve years and have been privileged to witness many marvelous evolutions of her art. Her subjects and the mediums she chooses have an exuberance that Roberta carries in her own personality and her life. A strong work ethic and clear vision of the end product are evident in the sheer volume of beautiful creations in her portfolio, most of them sold and many commissioned by repeat supporters. To see Roberta’s artwork is to love it. To see it up close is to 'have to have it'!”
May 18, 2009

Scott Hess
Owner, Scott Hess Photography
“Roberta's painting brings an exuberant sensuality to any space she enters. Her subject matter, command of color and texture, and the sheer love of life are embedded in her work at all scales from paintings to expansive murals.”
May 18, 2009

Eric Engstrom
Founder/Principal,
Engstrom Design Group
“Roberta Ahrens created a number of murals and art pieces for use in restaurant interiors for Engstrom Design Group, now EDG, while I was president of the firm. My own personal favorite was a full wall mural she completed for the contemporary Asian restaurant "Dragonfly" in Corte Madera. Her creativity in using Asian themes and elements complimentary to the interior design was outstanding, and the mural was completed on time and on budget. Roberta is extremely professional and I recommend her for any project where creativity, inspiration, and style is required.” May 19, 2009

Stacey Lapuk    ASID Interior Designer

“Roberta has proven her skills, creativity and work ethic consistently throughout the many years I've known her. She works exceptionally well in collaborations and brings a unique and valuable perspective to every project. From original paintings to trompe l'oeil; wall glazes and custom pieces such as screens and room dividers, everything she creates has a wonderful and long-lasting impact on her clients and environments. Stacey Lapuk, ASID Stacey Lapuk Interior Design Group” May 29, 2009

Linda Gozurian McMahon
President, Every Woman's Network
“Roberta is the most amazing combination of right brain/left brain that I have ever come accross. She is unbelievably talented as an artist and has produced some of the most inspiring paintings and designs that I have ever seen. In addition to her endless talent, she is a smart, dynamic and conscientious business woman. This, in todays world, is a difficult combination to find. I would highly recommend her, and would encourage everyone to take the opportunity to see her work.”  August 20, 2008
