Inspired by the experimental animated films of Oskar Fischinger and The National Film Board Of Canada Animation Film Festivals, Robin began her career in film animation as a night shift cell painter on the animated film Tubby The Tuba. She then went on to work in NYC on animated TV commercials. As styles changed, she shifted into motion graphics and then to becoming a special effects animation camerawoman, shooting commercials for American and South American TV.
As computers were threatening the film industry, Robin moved on to a job at Coleco Industries Inc as an artist/animator designing for the ColecoVision, Atari and Intellivision video game systems, and demos for the Consumer Electronics Shows.
Her digital effects images have been very influenced by her past work in film special effects, and the dynamics of motion graphics.
