Tomi Kobara is concerned with atmosphere, mood and cultural influences, ever refining and simplifying her technique... seeking always to express visually her keen appreciation of the constantly changing pattern and poetry of places and things.
An expert colorist, Tomi combines good composition with style and light, involving the viewer in an experience that is emotional as well as visual. With an unusually clear and bright palette...and without sentimentality.
Tomi applies texture and integrates shapes, color and accidental happenings into a rich and wonderfully exciting canvas. There is intellect and subtle humor fused into her work, but her overriding gift to art lovers the world over, is indeed, a happy one.
