About the Artist

Pax Leigh Robinson is a self-taught artist and writer based in Reno, Nevada. She works primarily in pen and ink and focuses on exploring the unexpected connections between humans and the natural world. Pax also published Neon Reno, a coloring and activity book depicting the vintage hotel and casino signs of the Biggest Little City. When not creating, she enjoys drinking too much coffee, riding her bike, and being near the Truckee River.

Artist's Statement

Exploring the Queer Bible contains images excerpted from a larger, multi-media project: The Queer Bible. These works are my direct interpretation of the Bible, greatly influenced by my multiple identities as a queer woman, environmentalist and outsider. This project was inspired by the disempowerment I felt growing up in Orange County, California, surrounded by an Evangelical Christian culture that made it clear that only approved clergy could interpret the Bible and that the main function of this book was for telling people what to do and who to judge and exclude. I hope these drawings inspire you to think about the Bible both critically and creatively. The Queer Bible contains text and additional drawings and hopefully one day will become a published book.
