Born in 1929, Robert Daughters was raised in St. Joseph, Missouri. After graduation from high school and three years in the military, he worked as a Curator of Display at the St. Joseph Museum of Natural History while attending the Kansas City Art Institute and School of Design.

During a 1953 visit to Taos, Robert discovered the beauty and light of the area. He and his family finally made their move to Santa Fe in 1970, then to Taos in 1972.

His earlier works were in a realistic, academic vein and consisted of many charcoal drawings of Southwest Indians, oils of New Mexico landscapes and Pueblo scenes. He received the Best of Show Award, the Governor's Purchase Award and the Merit Award at the New Mexico State Fair Show in 1972 and since then has participated in one-man, group and exhibition shows throughout the United States. In 1981, he exhibited in a Collection of Art of the West at the Beijing Exhibition Center in China. In 1995, he was chosen as one of the artists to be featured in Covering the West - The Best of Southwest Art a show which features 60 of the Southwest Art's 300 cover artists. The show is currently touring to various national museums.

For twenty years he lived in the O.E. Berninghaus home and studio in Taos. Now, much of the artist's time is spent in his homes in Mexico, on the Sea of Cortez, and the foothills of the Catalinas near Tucson, Arizona.
