Robyn graduated from Edinburgh College of Art in 2009 with a BA(Hons) in Intermedia Art and has since been travelling and sailing on tall ships. She has always been inspired by the sea, growing up in Shetland instilled a passion for all things nautical.

Learning about navigation and sailing on a fully rigged ship has introduced a more specific avenue in her work; the idea of crossing great distances, knowing where you are, where you are headed and working with the elements to get there. In her recent exhibition North Atlantic Drift Robyn focussed on the theme of tides, looking at them in connection to navigation and journey.
