Toby BoothmanToby was born in 1973 in Bristol.
In 1994 Toby went to study under the direction of Master Patrick Betaudier in Monflanquin in France at the Atelier Neo Medici. He was taught a modern version of the Renaissance technique known as the Technique Mixed. This technique; which combines detailed under painting with transparent oil glazes, dates back to the time of the 15th century Flemish master Jan van Eyck. Over the years he has modified the technique he was taught to enhance his paintings. He is in the process of writing a book on technique.
Recently Toby has been working on commissions for private individuals and special commissions for Super Yachts.
Toby is married with 3 children and lives and works in Aix en Provence in the south of France.
