Through the looking glass with Tricia Lee Robinson

Artist, Photographer, Musician, College Student, Music Teacher, Sister, Daughter, Blogger, and so much more. Tricia Lee Robinson wears many metaphorical hats in her day to day life. Born in Brockville, Tricia moved to Cornwall at the age of four years old, and lived there till the age of 18, until she moved to Kingston to take the Music and Digital Media program at St. Lawrence College.

"I'm done the program now but I still live here now (in Kingston), running my own photography business, 'Tricia Nosnibor Photography', and giving beginner's guitar lessons."

There is music in Tricia's bones.

"To put it simply, my life revolves around the arts. Without it, I don't think I could function in this world. I play guitar, ukulele and I sing. I've been playing guitar for 7 years now. With that, I write my own music and try new things. I make it a goal to play every day."

Tricia Lee Robinson played her first Cornwall music concert at Rock the Vote in 2009 - playing along side fellow musician, photographer, and friend Tracy Lalonde. Tricia has fond memories of Rock the Vote as the birth place of her photography career.

"As for the photography, I started taking photos when I was 14. My first job as a photographer was for the Rock the Vote concert in Cornwall. I was volunteering and was asked if I wanted to be the photographer for the show. It took less than five minutes to figure out that it was my passion. It just felt so natural and like I had been doing it for years. I've been working in photography ever since. I do weddings, live shows, band promo shots, parties and modeling portraiture. I was even published in a gaming magazine called Massive Online Gamer."

Tricia Lee Robinson has found a creative way to combine her photography skills and her music - by creating an online blog last month that features her art work.

"Recently, I've started a blog project. It's called 'Spring Cleaning'. The purpose of it is to encourage me to do something productive each day. It goes on a day to day posting basis. Every day I have to post a new photo, or a video of a new song I learnt. I'm on the 28th day now. I'm hoping the blog goes on for 369 days. I chose the name 'Spring Cleaning' because I was just in a state of a really bad writer's block. I wanted to knock myself out of it, so I thought this blog would help and I have to say it's working. I've kept my word on the blog and people really seem to enjoy following it. My favorite thing about creating art is the completed product, and the feedback I get on it. It encourages me to keep doing what I do."

Tricia Lee Robinson recently played a Christmas Concert in Cornwall, and she has an upcoming art event at The Artel in Kingston on Friday, April 22, 2011,

Song Lyrics "Oh No" by Lee Tricia Robinson

I don't want to cry no more
you just sit and stare as I walk out the door
well nobody wants to feel disposable
well I'll be the one who gets to laugh
when you're poor, you're dirt and you live like trash

oh no, oh no, you are the one who's disposable
oh no, oh no, you are the one who's disposable

well I guess the difference between you and I
is I will move on I will not die
and you will just sit there, rotting like filth
begging for me back 'cause ya love me still

oh no, oh no, you are the one who's disposable
oh no, oh no, you are the one who's disposable

So, don't make me sit here, judging my worth
while you back in the corner and yer playin' with dirt
20 years from now you'll still be the same
and I'll be long gone 'cause I went on my way

oh no, oh no, you are the one who's disposable
oh no, oh no, you are the one who's disposable
