Photo of the Artist
Toby Goodenough

Toby grew up in Seattle, Washington and later attended California College of the Arts in Oakland & San Francisco, where he studied drawing, painting, illustration and graphic design. He has explored many media including pen and ink, acrylics, watercolor, mixed media, oils and more recently photography.

Toby is drawn to weathered, layered, imperfect things which illustrate their age and experience with each layer, mark, juxtaposition and twist. Wandering an urban alleyway or a coast side trail offer him equally inspiring sources of imagery to observe and document. Processing the images he captures with Photoshop allows him to either reflect more precisely what he has observed, or to exaggerate interesting elements in an image. Creating collages from various images captured in a photo shoot offers him yet another avenue for creative expression.
