Boca Raton-based artist Susan Tobia of Susan Tobia Art appreciates the strength every woman has within herself and the importance of sharing it. The empowering art opening is the first of many that will share and bare the beauty and strength of a woman's soul via her magnificent fine art.
Utilizing acrylics and oils on canvas as her current primary media of choice, Mrs. Tobia draws the onlooker into what feels like a real-life person's scene. Her use of imagery drawn from nature and creative choices of color keep the onlooker's interest and create an almost hypnotic appeal with her technique of layering pieces within pieces. Mrs. Tobia is always exploring new and fun methods to express herself and will introduce a new form of art from her creative portfolio at the opening.
Mrs. Tobia says, "Art should not be boring – or weak, flat and lifeless. When I create, I pull from the energy of real life women who exude the beauty and strength in their souls. I strive to convey this using color, tone, texture and elements of nature." Then Mrs. Tobia went on to add that "Like with these women, my pieces are solely about embracing the beauty and strength through baring their souls in beautiful, colorful and vibrant surroundings."
"Growing up there were two things that I wanted to do. I wanted to be a dance choreographer and I wanted to work with young women who needed to learn that they have power. Having grown up with many family challenges, I had to learn to push through at a very early age and suffered with depression due to my experiences. I always wanted to somehow show women that they are not their circumstances and that they can rise. I wanted to empower particularly those who themselves have suffered in many ways. My art represents the soul and strength in every woman. We are creators, we are life givers, we are lovers. I like to portray my women in beautiful, colorful and vibrant surroundings to capture the essence of that strength and beauty. But most of all, I paint to share my power."
