Tobi Held is a passionate artist who puts a bit of herself into each painting, unleashing her emotions with each brush stroke. Working with oil paints and mixed media, Held presents what is at times an amalgamation of still life and abstraction. What shines through is an obsession with the process itself. Her work exhibits a refined palette and a variety of subjects. Rather than exhausting one particular subject, Held chooses to challenge herself and broaden her technical skills with this myriad of subject matter. Despite her paintings' exploration of various themes, each piece has unmistakable feeling, showing off her genuine love for her art. As a child, Held dreamt of becoming an artist. She has trained since then with art classes, graduating from Boston University in 2000 with a degree in graphic design and art history. Held now lives in New York City and works in the Arts.
