Since 2015 she has had six solo shows at Adam Peck Gallery in Provincetown, MA, and in 2020 was part of a 3 person show at Fountain Street Gallery in Boston, MA. She was the Higgins Art Gallery Artist in Residence at the Tilden Arts Center/Cape Cod Community College in the fall of 2020.

Robertson teaches classes at Truro Center for the Arts at Castle Hill, and at the Provincetown Art Association and Museum, and she also works with other artists to create their websites and enhance their online presence.
