Jon Tobin is a Canadian Artist living and working in southern Ontario. While the painting and drawing techniques Tobin uses are from an earlier period in art history. his subject matter is current. His figurative work is created in the studio as he draws and paints from models. Many of the landscape pieces are started outside on location and later returned to his studio to be developed further.

Description: Canadian Artist Jon Tobin
Living in Northern Ontario near the Quebec border, Jon Tobin grew up amongst a landscape and people who are deeply representative of both traditional Canadian heritages. French and English meet in a place that is wild and rugged, always changing, and yet largely untouched by human demands. Watching highly skilled craftsmen create beautiful sleigh harnesses and other quality hand-built pieces in the old ways gave Tobin a unique perspective on how art and life intersect in traditional cultures. The French Canadian film ''My Oncle Antoine'' is a story, a film and a setting the artist can identify with as Tobin's childhood was very similar to that of the boy in the film.
