Robin is an artist living in Toronto. She
does many different sorts of art, including illustration, photography, mural painting & sculpture. She's a graduate
of OCAD, where she went for video & performance, so of course, she now makes her living sewing toys...
Robin has spent most of her life making toys & puppets, but she discovered Sock Monkeys only a few years ago, when
friends got a pair of traditional Sock Monkeys at a Maple Sugar Festival. She was inspired by the brilliant
idea of using one pair of socks to make a toy, and began making Sock Animals & learning the history of Sock Monkeys. She
quickly discovered how there is so much fascinating history and so much creative potential to the wonderfully silly world
of Sock Art!
In the Year of the Monkey, Robin created RoRo Art, to create and sell the most wonderful, highest quality Sock Monkeys & Animals,
Puppets, Sock Hobby Horses, clothing & art! She has made over a thousand different Sock Animals and they have gone around the
world, including Japan, Australia, England, France, Belgium, Tibet, across the States and across Canada from
coast to coast!
Robin also has a puppet company, Unraku, where she builds and performs table-top puppets and various styles of puppetry!
