About my work:
We are all creative beings, artists. Every one of us has the innate desire to express what is inside of us. For as long as I can remember I have been painting, writing, dancing, singing; they have all been significant parts of my life. Without them I would have shriveled away long ago. Bold colors, unique textures and objects consistently find their way into my life and my artwork. I paint with acrylics for the intense pigmentation, but I have been known to use random objects in my paintings as well, everything from paper and jewels, to pipe cleaners and caulking foam, whatever works. While these elements are crucial to my creativity, the most important aspect is emotion.

My mixed media works mainly focus on the strengths, beauty, and mystery of the female form. These aspects are apparent to me every single day. After all, arenít we all goddesses, faeries, gypsies, mermaids, maidens, sirens, enchantresses, mothers, lovers, and friends? My work consists of many layers, layers of color and textures, but mainly layers of meaning. I have a surrealistic style and strive to capture multitudes of expressions and emotions. Yes, I am an artist, and I have a responsibility to bring beauty into the world; but much more than that, to make people think and feel in ways they might not have otherwise been able to do. Mermaids represent the female form, of course, but also a deep love and respect for the ocean; which is a thing of beauty, deep moods, power and mystery; as are all women. I was born and raised in Monmouth Beach, NJ and have always had a deep connection to the Ocean. It has the capability to fuel creativity and foster imagination.

My black and white photography focuses mainly on textures, in comparison to one another and on there own. I also enjoy studying interesting angles and shadows on everyday objects, and creating a sense of loneliness and solitude in my black and white photography.

My digitally manipulated photography is is all about color! I adore color, playing with it, experimenting and mixing, highlights and low lights, shadows, abstract shapes and instilling different moods into my digital, color photographic works. This body of work is very different from my painting and B&W photos, and I thoroughly enjoy having a digital outlet in which to create.

I hope you enjoy my work as much as I enjoy creating it! Thanks so much for stopping by my galleries. Please stop by often as new work is being uploaded frequently!

PEACE,
Linnea Tober, Artist
