“My inspiration is drawn from the sum of my life experiences, the amplified or muted, to fit my emotional state at the moment when I am actually creating, designing, or working.”

Will Robinson was born in Bremerton, Washington and studied History the University of Washington. Robinson's desire to create art began at an early age, growing up in a home filled with art, antiques and Bonsai. He chooses to work primarily with stone because of its solidity and ability to withstand the elements and time. Varying textures integrate smooth and rough surfaces, creating intriguing duality in the stone. He encourages viewers to touch his work; engaging with the stone creates a connection between the medium, the artist, and the viewer.
