Damien Robinson studied at Great Yarmouth College of Art and Design and Goldsmiths (University of London). Since graduating, she has divided her time between working as a practising artist and as an arts administrator. She has worked in the exhibitions department at the Museum of Modern Art Oxford, and for Arts Council England, where she is currently part time Resource Development Officer at the national office.
Deafened at the age of seventeen as a result of meningitis, her work often draws on her experiences as a deaf person. She originally used traditional printmaking methods to develop both two and three-dimensional work, often based on children’s stories and toys.
She now works with digital media and sound, developing web-based works (such as Aerial) and installations, which often explore the relationship between sound that can be heard that which can be felt. Her work has been shown in venues as diverse as phone boxes in London and Liverpool, the National Art Library, as well as Gallaudet University (Washington), and internationally via the web. She lives on the Essex coast.
