Rebecca Tobey

In 1987, Rebecca Tobey began collaborating with her late husband, Gene, creating brightly colored ceramic and bronze sculptures, watercolors, jewelry and most recently kiln fired glass.

After Gene's death from leukemia in 2006, Rebecca has continued to create art evocative of the work for which she and Gene were known.  "I'm a painter at heart," she says, "and creating a painting or a drawing on the surface of a sculpture is such a delight for me. I also cut shapes into my ceramic sculpture so that the negative space will add additional design elements to the work.  Every day I get to the studio as fast as I can to begin anew! I tell people that I get ‘paid to play’ and I plan to never retire!"

Growing up in East Tennessee as the daughter of an Oak Ridge scientist, Rebecca Upton’s world was strikingly different from her life today.  She attended college and graduate school at Adelphi University in Garden City, NY.  Discouraged from studying art by her high school art teacher, she has Bachelors and Masters Degrees in Theatre Arts with an emphasis in Scene Design and Stagecraft.

Rebecca has been inspired by the art of the various cultures she has visited from the Southwest to South America, Polynesia and Africa.  She has visited Kenya, New Zealand, Venezuela, Alaska, and the Philippines as well as many countries in Europe. She loves to travel and soak up imagery that she explores in the studio. Her work is evolving into expressions of the world around her, and she finds the use of bird and insect imagery intriguing. “Art is the evolution of a thought process,” she says, “It’s the process of creation that excites me, the doing, not the finished product! I guess that’s why I can’t wait to get to the studio every day.”
