"The Artist's Kaleidoscopic World"
Like a real Kaleidoscope, Toby's art is created with a burst of color, symmetry of design and motion all captured in "The Artists Kaleidoscopic World". Her goal in creating work is to intrigue each person by drawing their eye into the piece of art, while holding it there so they may see all of the intricate detail. In developing her style, she has always been intrigued by different and unusual pieces of art and has strived to do the same in her work. She is a mixed media artist, whose work is contemporary and ranges from different degrees of abstraction and experimental to representation. Her images both representational and non-objective show the use of color, design & techniques as seen through the artist eyes.

Toby's work will be published in the Spring Issue of the Watercolor Magazine 2007. Previous publishing's are the Watercolor Magic Magazine, The Artist's Magazine and Over the Mountain Journal in 2006; Daler-Rowney Catalog & Deep South Jewish Voice in 2005; The Birmingham Post Herald 2003 & 2002, Birmingham Magazine 2003 & Memphis Jewish Journal 2003 May & December & 2004; The Pen Women (Official Magazine of National League of American Pen Women) 2002 & 1999; Watercolor Magazine 2001; The Birmingham News 1999 & 1996. Among other awards, locally as well as internationally, she has won the N.A.W.A. Medal of Honor in the National Association of Women Artists 112th National Exhibition in New York, NY, the Most Innovative Award in the Creative Catalyst Production Exhibition and had one of her pieces selected as a Finalist in "The Artist Magazine's" 2006, 2005, 2003 & 2002 Annual Art Competition.
