William Robinson was born in Nova Scotia’s beautiful Annapolis Valley. After graduating from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design with a Bachelor of Design in Visual Communication, William moved to Fredericton and established and co-managed the graphic design firm, Robinson & Greenwood, for many years.
In 2012, a long-held interest in jewelry design prompted him to enroll in the Jewelry/Metal Arts program at the New Brunswick College of Craft and Design. The recipient of a number of awards and scholarships, William also received the Governor General’s Award for academic excellence at the 2014 NBCCD convocation ceremonies.
William has participated in several Craft NB exhibitions that have toured the province as well as the Beneath the Surface residency in Fundy National Park. In 2014, he was awarded ‘The Best in Technical Achievement Award’, for his pendant ‘Absolute Spin’, at Toronto’s Zilberschmuck Gallery’s 10th annual National Juried Exhibition.
