Born in Corteyou, Alabama, Robinson has been an active painter since 1969. Self taught, the artist has produced a large body of work in styles as varied as impressionism, landscape, and still life. Robinson tries to earnestly convey what he can see or imagines outside his window with each stroke of his brush.

When talking about what it is he does, Robinson says "I find it much easier to express my thoughts through painting versus words. Beauty, balance, light, and movement are all used to express the spirit of the subjects or stories I tell on canvas. This is who I am, what I feel."

The artist resides in Doraville, Georgia.
