He received his BFA from the Tyler School of Art at Temple University in 1966 and his MFA from the Cranbrook Academy of Art in 1968. Working primarily in sculpture, and using traditional casting methods, Robin has created a large body of work in diverse media such as aluminum, stone, cast iron, bronze, and plaster. Stephen Robin has a longstanding interest in the history of architecture, and in particular, architectural ornamentation.
