Rebecca Tobey

Santa Fe, NM

Rebecca Tobey began her career as a professional artist 31 years ago when she began collaborating with her late husband, Gene Tobey. Her stylized animal sculptures in bronze and ceramic reflect her strong connection to the earth. She incorporates additional layers of sgraffito drawings into the sculptures, and cuts holes in the ceramics to create interesting compositions using negative space. The bird and insect life of her rural Santa Fe home fascinates her and she finds herself frequently representing it in her work. “All things are bound together.  All things connect.  Whatever we do to this world, we do to ourselves and I try to represent that in my work.”
