Sam Roblin is a Hispanic and LGBTQ Nevada based photographer, as well as painter and multimedia artist. Although her work ranges from studio portraiture to conceptual feminist narratives, she enjoys photographing simple and domestic settings with an emphasis on architectural themes and landscape. Roblin is from the Reno Tahoe area, and graduated from the University of Nevada Reno with an undergraduate degree in both Photography and Psychology. She is passionate about community involvement in the arts and teaches various mediums to high school age students in her hometown. In addition to teaching, Roblin has organized and run community youth art programs through Artown, a local Reno organization dedicated to expanding art outreach and uplifting diverse cultural artistic disciplines within the city. Roblin has been photographing since the age of 8, and painting since the age of 4. She hopes to continuously rediscover her passion for the arts and its nuances for the entirety of her career.
