Robin has an honors BFA from the University of Houston in studio art/metalsmithing. She has made jewelry and been a lapidary for 10 years, being known for her unusual stones and color combinations in her jewelry. She's been a seamstress since pre-teen years and a knitter for over 50 years. Always wanting to make her own cloth, it was not until 1997 that she was able to purchase a loom and begin weaving. In 1999 she started spinning after being introduced to the craft while demonstrating at the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo with the Contemporary Handweavers of Houston. She has been dyeing her own fiber and yarn since she began weaving and spinning. When she could not find buttons worthy of her handwoven garments, she created Perfect Buttons (one-of-a-kind dichroic glass buttons). Robin sells her handwovens, handpainted yarn and fiber, and handspun yarns at shows around New Mexico. She also teaches knitting and handpainting yarn classes in her studio in the East Mountains of New Mexico (east of Albuquerque) where she relocated in 2003. Robin teaches knitting in her studio in Edgewood, New Mexico, and at other venues around the Southwest. Perfect Buttons, handwoven garments, handpainted yarns, rovings and yarn kits are available at the Tapestry Gallery in Madrid, NM, and yarn and buttons at Hip Stitch in Albuquerque. She invites anyone passing through New Mexico to come by for a visit. Robin is a member of Las Aranas Spinners & Weavers Guild, Intermountain Weavers Association, past president of Route 66 Arts Alliance, and a certified judge of handspun yarn.
