Originally from Western Massachusetts Robin Crofut-Brittingham received her BA from Bard College in Annandale-On-Hudson, New York with a focus in Poetry and Art History. She completed her MFA at the San Francisco Art Institute. She was recently a recipient of the Murphy Cadogan award through The San Francisco Foundation and a Martha Boschen Porter Award through the Berkshire Taconic Foundation.  

Her current work reflects on the relationship between humans and the natural world. In this work she proposes an alternative future that is equal parts apocalyptic and utopian. In this imagined reality  the developed human world as we know it has been reclaimed by plants and animals to be an overgrown, wild, untamed and dangerous fantasy world.
