Joshua Tobey

Sculpture is about shape.  For me, the composition starts with shape and the personality of the subject is simply part of me, the sculptor, showing through in my artwork.  I enjoy seeing people recognize an aspect of themselves in the personality of my sculpture.  Nature, in all its wonderful and diverse forms, is my inspiration.  My artwork is not a replica; it is an impression of nature’s perfection.  I do most of my own patinas and the finish is the final aspect of my composition.
