Robin Botie (moonbeckon)

Robin Botie is a blogger and photographer who believes she can design her way into or out of anything. In her weekly blogs at Botie writes about growing in the midst of grief, and finding life after loss. She volunteers at Hospicare Palliative Care Services in Ithaca, New York, phoning quarterly care calls to the bereaved. She has worked as an art teacher at the Elizabeth Ann Clune Montessori School of Ithaca and as a special education teacher in the Ithaca City School District. Botie is the creator and former owner of Silk Oak, an Ithaca-based hand silkscreen printing and design company. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts (Art Education) and Master of Arts (Environmental Arts) from Syracuse University. A foodie, a hiker, an out-loud reader, Botie is the proud mother of a grown son and daughter. She lives in the hills surrounding Ithaca, in the house she designed on a small pond, with a green heron, ducks and geese, very vocal frogs, deer, raccoons and muskrats, and an occasional fox. She wants you to know that anything’s possible. Even joy.
