Robin Zee was born into an artistic family in Montreal in 1957. Robin uses her art as a form of self-expression and healing after surviving a tough life that included violence, sexual abuse and human trafficking. Her art is her saving grace. Being an artist has always been a very important part of Robin’s life and an important coping mechanism.
Robin has always expressed herself as a Sketch Artist, Painter and Mixed Media Artist. Robin Zee’s artwork took off in the early 90’s with showings across Canada, USA & Europe. She has also discovered that she is a storyteller, having written, performed and produced in her one woman show, BorderLine Me. Her talents through this work were recognized when Robin Zee was awarded the Hamilton Arts Award as Performer of the Year for 2015. She has since written a follow up to BorderLine Me entitled, No Dick Pics Please, which was debuted recently in 2017 at the Hamilton Fringe Festival.

Emma is going into her 3rd year at the Ontario College of Art and Design with a major in Fibre in the Material Art and Design program. She has always enjoyed being creative and exploring new materials and techniques, as well as exploring themes of self and identity in her work. Her artwork style is a blend of organic and natural designs with a strong emphasis on detail, her practice is based on investigating dry and wet felting techniques, embroidery, working with a knit machine, floor and tapestry looms, as well as paper making and screen printing. Emma uses natural dye techniques to create a sense of color throughout her work, and she looks for alternative, organic resources and processes to build into her repertoire of skills. Currently, she is completing her degree at OCAD, as well as developing her work at the Cotton Factory shared space studio in Hamilton, Ontario.

Marley's Reach is a community oriented space where we find faith, inspiration, and divinity within ourselves while we make connections, empower our minds, and lovingly push for social reform. It is a reach to and for spiritually and socially conscious people, a call to revolutionaries willing to stand and speak as free beings, a signal to inquisitive people who dream of lasting peace. In unity we claim freedom, focusing on equality, positive vibrations, and the celebration of life.
Marley's Reach is a movement. Built on the premise of a co-op, having a intention of working with other sustainable projects to promote community, and Ubuntu-«the belief in a universal bond of sharing that connects all humanity». With dreams of a healthy prosperous world. We are floating the waters with an inevitability of one day merging with other alike to build unity.
Marley's Reach is a philosophy. It is expanding on Bob Marley's dream, a meeting place to come together and share wellness. Where one can retreat, connect, expand, and play. Built on the philosophy and culture of Rastafari, we are a vegan community promoting a plant based lifestyle.
Marley's Reach is a house of everything Art. Expressing creativity in all different forms. Bringing artists together to create the Master Piece. With people working together we can create a beautiful world of abundance, to grow back Eden.
