Twila Robar-DeCoste ('77, '80, '83)
Twila Robar-DeCoste, of Aylesford, Nova Scotia, is an artist and illustrator. She holds a BSc and MSc in biology and a BEd from Acadia University. She was elected to the Society of Canadian Artists in 2009. Robar-DeCoste has illustrated 18 books and numerous brochures, mostly on natural history. She has taught painting classes and workshops since 1987 in her home studio, the wider community and at Acadia University. Her work is found in many private and corporate collections in North America and Europe. She is currently president of the Botanical Artists of Nova Scotia Association (BANSA) and her work is inspired by the beauty and diversity of nature.
