My name is Eliza Lynn Tobin and I create paintings of female figures vibrantly embracing their wisdom in powerful poses and brightly layered lines of paint and ink.
Each figure is placed within an abstracted world of contrasting colors, botanicals, sacred geometrics and organic shapes. The painted environments provide nourishing atmospheres for the figures, representing environments I desire to cultivate in my own life.
My paintings are influenced by my spiritual journey. This journey has included the exploration of Yoga, Tantra, Shamanism, Plant Medicine, Ayurveda, and Art Therapy. These practices help me to trust my intuition, find confidence in my body, and craft life habits that are self sustaining and nourishing.
My work acknowledges the glowing wellness, wholeness and joy that emerges when one is fully alive in their body and spirit, reminding each of us that the world needs us in full color.
I've been a painter for over 15 years and have sold thousands of prints + paintings to budding and experienced yogis alike. A lovely soul said of one of my pieces,
"your painting is a remarkable piece of art that portrays what happened to me at a yoga retreat...my heart literally exploded open."
If you are looking for an image to help you remember your wholeness, I've got:
- over 100 vibrant paintings + prints to light up your yoga space
- paintings infused with a master's degree study of creativity and yogic philosophy
- art work informed by over 500 hours of yogic training and years of teaching
- pieces created from the momentum of 15 years of study in the arts
When I'm not painting you can find me:
practicing yoga, studying plant medicine, adventuring outdoors, traveling, writing or reading fantasy novels.
>>>> After living in the mountain West for most of the past ten years, I've moved back to my home state of Vermont with my husband, daughter Savannah and dog Tulsi.
>>>> I began painting at age 8 with my Dad, apprenticed with him in high school and studied Fine Arts at St. Lawrence University. Then I studied creativity, art and yoga in a Masters degree at Lesley University.
>>>> I explored figure drawing in Italy, Tantric Art in India, expressive art therapy in New England, intuitive painting online, and I continue to explore the creative process in my studio.
>>>> I tried out a lot of things before becoming a full time artist. I’ve been a nanny, a stock room manager, a yarn store assistant, a wilderness adventure leader, and a high school art teacher.
