Meet Tobie

I like to think of art as a place of freedom. With so many rules and confines in life, I have found that it is very important to have a safe place to explore unbounded. As a creative explorer, I am drawn to symbolism and symbolic meaning of things, words or writings that ring deeply true or profound in some way, bright colors, textures, and all things curious. How do they possibly fit together?


Drawing upon knowledge gained from formal education, life lessons,  the gift of inspirational people and a lifelong practice of the arts, I exercise and indulge in this pursuit of freedom and creative exploration.


I invite you to join me. Making' art is so much fun!
