We are both proud O'Fallon, IL. residents.  Robin is originally from Minnesota.  Married her high school sweetheart and followed him into the Air Force.  After 22 years of service they retired here.  Robin started a career as a high school art teacher at Edwardsville High School.  After 15 years of teaching, she retired to travel the country. Cory is Robin's youngest, and she has an older son, who lives in Minnesota.

Cory married a friend and classmate from OTHS, Ben.  She has two children, a son, Seth and a daughter, Olivia.  Cory is active in the studio.  She was active with the Nationally recognized O'Fallon Township High School Marching Panthers, and still supports them.

Robin and Cory opened Art Gecko Studio on April 4, 2016.  "We love what we do and we are blessed we get to do it."  They are participants of the O'Fallon/Shiloh Chamber of Commerce, and The O'Fallon Downtown District.  Cory is active in The Vine Street Market on the Artisan committee, involved in getting Chalk It Up To Art! Chalk contest started, as well as working on an amazing team for BazaArt 2021.

We love O'Fallon and excited to call it home.
