Since Robbie Steinbach attended graduate school at the University of Iowa in the mid-1980s, most of her work has examined women's lives. Robbie's images make the work and lives of women visible, highlighting the complexity of their lives and their ambiguous status in our society as their roles change, but many traditional expectations remain. She completed a series of portraits that culminated in the 1998 book Lifework: Portraits of Iowa Women Artists

After transitional on a body of self-portraits, landscapes, and images of women done in Tuscany and Umbria, Robbie continues to make portraits of women in her new home of Taos, New Mexico.
