Robbie began working in clay in 1991, desiring a three-dimensional canvas. The intersection of painting and clay has fueled more than two decades of exploration in ceramics.
In 1995, Robbie received an MFA in Ceramics from RISD. Robbie was awarded Massachusetts’ highest honor — an Artist Fellowship in Crafts in 2009. Their work has been shown in numerous exhibits across the country and internationally. In 2019 was invited by Bai Ming to be an Artist in Residence at The Shangyu Celadon Modern International Center in China. The work created there was exhibited at The Shangyu Museum of Art.
