Drawn to concepts relating to a sense of place, Robbins works with what is reclaimed, what has been discarded and what has caught on fire. Building on conversations and connections with the community, she is able to visually share a dialog that is reflected in the work. 

Robbins' sculptures bring to the foreground the history of the materials as she constructs rustic landscapes within the framework. Her work becomes a web of conversation only after the layers of veneer, paint, ash, and rust have been altered on the original surface surface.

Robbins graduated from the San Francisco Art Institute in 2012 with an MFA in Studio Art and an MA in History and Theory of Contemporary Art.
