"Colorful and visually intriguing yet suggestive of a darkness within, Robson's sculptures and installations communicate a strong environmental message. She is one of the few artists I know of whose works are both politically motivated and truly beautiful at the same time."

"I think my mom is AWESOME i love her work to but she as a person is even better"

"I absolutely adore this work. the concept behind the work is strong and the visual ascetics breath taking. I would love to experience one of your installations in person. Question. what is the process of getting the color in the plastics or do you use already colored plastics?"

"This work is spectacular and beautiful and embodies very much what art should be. I was however a little disappointed when I watched the attached youtube video, as I hear to often nowadays artists trying to weave in an environmentally conscious message. I'm an advocate of reuse and conservation, I just think it's a distraction from the perspective of the appreciator, who may be trying to enjoy the beautiful forms just the way they are."

"Wow both r really beautiful"

"It's an obvious circle of its creators beginning.very nice."
