Toby creates bold, flamboyant landscapes and poignant, reflective portraits, as well as contemporary collage and assemblage works. She began painting as soon as she was old enough to hold a brush and doesn’t remember a time when she was not creating art.
After moving from New York to California, Toby studied with artist Alex Villmusen, she credits him with encouraging her to select bold colors without thinking of the rules. Never being a rule follower in any part of her life, this was the perfect fit, allowing her imagination free reign.
Toby attended Hunter College and Fashion Institute of Technology, both in New York City.
A few of the galleries Toby’s work has been displayed are: Half Gallery New York City, The Left Coast Gallery, Terrell Moore Gallery, Burbank Creative Arts Center, The Slutsky Gallery, The Coffee fix, and Venice Art Gallery
