          Judge of Awards, Tobi Clement:

          “Creativity requires courage, curiosity and a willingness to be playful.” ~ Tobi

          “My love of the outdoors, nature, and gardening evolved into a strong desire to express the beauty I was experiencing both visually and energetically when I was outdoors. The intuitive voice led me to choose pastels as my medium and evoked my desire to learn to paint en plein air. The choice could not be more fitting, allowing me to spend time outdoors observing the magical and ever-changing light and extraordinary landscapes of New Mexico.

          2010  Tobi began her art journey by taking art workshops and joining her local art organizations, Plein Air Painters of NM and Pastel Society of NM. Tobi said “ I gained so much experience from observing my peers, painting plein air with the group and attending art shows. It wasn’t long before I felt ready to enter local juried shows.” 

          2018  A pivotal year in her career as an artist. Tobi was recognized as an Artist to Watch in the May issue of Southwest Art Magazine, then mentioned as the Featured Artist in the June/July issue of Santa Fean Magazine.
          An invitation to be represented by Canyon Road Contemporary Art Gallery followed. 

          2019  Pratiques des Arts, a French magazine interviewed Tobi for an eight-page editorial and featured her pastel painting “Can I Tempt You?” on the cover of the magazine. 

          Tobi was then invited to be one of fourteen American Pastel Artists to be invited by the Les Amis Des Arts to be included in a special exhibition honoring women pastellists. The show will feature the American Women in the historical Orangerie of the Castle La Louvier. The second exhibition will feature over 30 women pastellists from around the world. Exhibition dates May 1, 2022. 

          2020  Pastel Journal invited Tobi to create a two-part article for the Skill Builders section, discussing the importance of  understanding the variety of materials available to pastel artists. The first editorial, in the August issue 2020, reviewed brands of pastel papers, the second editorial, October issue 2020, reviewed pastel brands. 

          PleinAir Magazine Invited Tobi to create a 6 page article for their Elements section, November issue 2020, explaining her approach to painting skies.
