Robin was born with a whimsical imagination. Her mother and father were both also very creative. She spent much of her childhood building houses in the woods for the fairies and gnomes and rock shelters in creeks for the frogs, snakes and turtles! To this day, Robin is still inspired by fantastical creatures in fantasy movies, childhood poems, nursery rhymes, and nature.
After 21 years as an RN, she retired from nursing began designing fabric originals. She is forever grateful to her collectors and to Bethany Lowe for the rare opportunity to see her art in fine gift shops.
Robin's doll company is Outside the Box Primitives. Her work has been published in many popular craft and doll magazines. While designing for Bethany Lowe, she continues to create originals available on her website.
Robin lives on a circa 1850 farm in PA. She and her husband have 6 children and 8 grandchildren; along with horses, cats, and a pair of ducks called Charlie and Maisy Floater.
