As a student of Textile Arts and Asian History, Robin spent a great deal of time experimenting, designing and creating various hand-made fabrics including Katazome silks. While in college, she discovered the work of Jo Ellen Trilling, but other distractions prevented her from pursuing soft sculpture projects. After graduating college, Robin started illustrating professionally.
