Robin Cameron (b.1981, British Columbia, Canada) is an artist based in New York City who works in a wide range of media such as ceramics, brass sculptures, films, drawings, cyanotypes and printmaking. She often uses traditional media in an unconventional way to explore the boundaries of time, systems of thought, and identity.

She is best known for making books which are available at Printed Matter and held in the collection of the MoMA library.

Her work is in the permanent collection at the Whitney Museum.

She graduated in 2012 with an MFA from Columbia University. She has worked as a visiting professor at Cornell University and Lehigh University and an adjunct at Rutgers University.
