After a successful 35-year career in theatre, Robin found a new creative outlet in sculpting and painting. Her theatrical experiences serve as an inspiration for her work, much of which expresses her frustration at being a hard-of-hearing person navigating hearing and deaf realities. Robin has worked in a variety of sculpting mediums, including bronze, steel, wire mesh, acrylic and clay, and in each she pays meticulous attention to surface, contour and texture. “Texture” is also a hallmark of Robin’s mixed-media paintings, in which she incorporates found objects such as buttons, zippers and wire. Robin has shown her work in more than 15 group shows and in two solo shows on the theme of deafness. She was awarded 2nd Place in the Second Annual Juried De’VIA Competition and Exhibit, and she has exhibited in the National Touring Exhibition of Deaf Culture Art. Her work has been presented at the Outsider Art Fair. The Final Bow, Robin’s five-foot-tall, 600-pound bronze and copper sculpture, is on view at Fountain House.
