Faith Ann Gilbert was born in the 1970’s to young, loving, hardworking, blue-collar parents in Battle Creek Michigan. At an early age, Faith was drawing and dancing.
In 1998 Faith felt compelled to return to college to pursue her art. After strong encouragement from her professors in Kalamazoo, she applied to The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and was accepted. In 2000 she moved to Chicago to attend SAIC and studied under prestigious artist professors such as Judith Geichman, Frank Piatek, Roxie Tremonto, Marion Kryczka, Karl Wirsum, and many others. While attending SAIC Faith fulfilled an artist residency at the Three Arts Club of Chicago; she received numerous awards for her work in college including being a recipient of many artist grants and residencies. Faith was accepted to the highly competitive Advanced Painting Studio Program at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago in which she had her own studio alongside eleven studio mates.
Faith has since relocated to Colorado with her husband Andrew Ryan Robb. Faith has shown frequently throughout the years in galleries and alternative spaces. She continues to develop a dynamic and exciting body of work with multiple ongoing series alongside many commissions and side projects from which many private collectors have purchased and have shown throughout the world.
