Toby was born in Bristol in 1973, and began training under Master Patrick Betaudier in Monflanquin, France at the Atelier Neo Medici in 1994. Since then his career has flourished both in the UK and wider Europe, with his residence and studio based in the South of France. Boothman's love for the open water emanates from his work, reflecting his beautiful daily surroundings.
Toby Boothman is a British painter taking a modern approach to Renaissance style with his hyperreal nautical scenes. Boothman's dynamic depictions feature bodies and boats at sea with remarkable accuracy. Boothman is part of the RSMA (Royal Society of Marine Artists) and exhibits regularly with Thompson's Gallery London and the Mall Galleries, London.
