Meet Robert and Hannah Hinojosa. They are the brains behind Rhinodillo Designs, and the artists that create the products offered. Married in 2009, these two have been creating together for years, and plan to be creating for years to come. Let's find out a bit more about them...
Robert Hinojosa was born in San Antonio, TX, and came to Arkansas for college in 2005. Since then, he has called Arkansas home, and currently lives and works in Little Rock, AR. Robert’s work has been featured in competitions and his work was displayed in 2004 at the South Texas Blood & Tissue Center.
Robert’s passion for art has been strong since he was young, often taking to drawing and more imaginative activities. Despite deciding to pursue other opportunities in college, graduating with his Bachelor’s, and later Master’s degree in Social Work, he never gave up his passion for creating. He pursued creative avenues by teaching himself graphic design and honing his illustration and cartooning skills.
Robert finds joy in design and illustration, and in May of 2015 he founded Rhinodillo Designs with his wife, Hannah. The focus of Robert’s work has been to inspire creativity in others, and communicate through his art. Robert now works primarily in acrylic paint, illustration, printmaking, and sculpture.
When not creating, Robert works to better the lives of others through his profession as a Social Worker. His artwork often reflects both the pain and hope that he encounters on a daily basis through his work with some of the most hurt and vulnerable populations. His artwork communicates his view of the human experience.
Hannah Hinojosa was born in Texas, and then spent 6 years in Alabama before moving to Arkansas for college. Hannah has called Arkansas home for the last 10 years, and currently lives and works in Little Rock. Her artwork has been displayed in the Birmingham Museum of Art, and she has won several competitions with her work.
In the Spring of 2010, Hannah graduated from Harding University with a Bachelor of Arts in Fine Art. She went on to complete her Masters degree at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. While completing her education, Hannah’s core concentration was in Printmaking and Ceramics. She now works primarily in oil paints and printmaking.
In May 2015, Hannah helped start Rhinodillo Designs, along with her husband Robert. Together, they create works of art and collaborate on both personal and commissioned pieces.
When not creating art, Hannah inspires others, and cultivates new artists through teaching. Hannah is currently the Art Department Head at Joe T. Robinson High School in Little Rock, AR.
