In 2008 and again in 2013 Tobin
had the opportunity to travel to, and photograph Iceland.
"The island is stark, at first glance barren, and primordially elemental. The vistas are often desolate in their immensity, yet look closely and the landscape is a riot of color and form - light and darkness, fire and ice. I am transfixed by the intricacy of design within even the smallest forms in the landscape."

Tobin was born and raised in Mendocino. He spent his childhood roaming the hills, which were quite literally his backyard playground. Art has been a driving force in his life, and natural beauty its impetus. Art was integral to his development, being both nurtured by his family and central to the Waldorf education he received in his youth.
After high school Tobin pursued an education in art, with a focus on photography and the blossoming array of digital media. He received a Bachelor of Media Arts degree from Emily Carr University, in Vancouver, British Columbia. In 2013 Tobin completed a Master of Fine Art with a focus in illustration from the Academy of Art in San Francisco, CA. Tobin works as a freelance illustrator, Muralist and educator. Since 2005 Tobin has taught courses at Mendocino College. Subjects of instruction range from digital photography and computer graphics, to traditional painting and drawing
