Robin was born 1953 in New Jersey, USA. She always enjoyed working with her hands. Wood shop was her favorite class in junior high school. She also played keyboards in a rock band. And flying around the tri-state area with her solo pilot's license. (At 16 years old)
After high school, she took welding lessons and started a job welding industrial paint mixers. Then worked in a sign company. Before the CNC routers, all the letters were cut out by hand. To cut out the inside of an "O", you had to drill a hole inside to get the saw blade in. The scrap center pieces looked like a face, with the drilled hole being the eye. So she started creating small figures out of the scrap. Then she started adding different hair styles. She also entered a photograph in the company (United Advertising Corp) competition. She received second place.
She moved to Florida in 1980. Still working in signs, becoming a production manager for two companies. She is retired now but enjoys creating art, big art!
Robin is transgender, she did not want to add this because she thought it would distract from her art, but it seems people want to know about the artist. That brings up another thing, she does not consider herself as an artist. She has no training in art. She thinks of herself as a craftswoman.
