Lillian Celine Tobey better known as LC, grew up on the south side of Chicago where she studied art glass under the direction of Robert Cooper of Cooper Art Glass. Upon moving to McKinney Texas LC continued her glass studies with Michael Riffkind Kittrill/Riffkind Art Glass of Addison Texas. She enjoys creating and restoring traditional art glass, fused glass and recycled glass. Her work is widely diverse, from Gallery style work sold at Orisons Art Gallery, to fun and funky Functional Art - Cheese Boards, Sushi Boards, Appetizer Plates & Bowls. Jewelry is often in the mix along with Yard Art which includes Signs, Bells, Mobile’s & Bird Baths. (http://www.dallasnews.com/lifestyles/home-and-gardening/ )
Besides working in glass you can often find her photographs gracing the cover and inside pages of McKinney Magazine!www.mckinneymagazine.com
LC Tobey works with her two favorite non-profits Arts and Music Guild & Chestnut Square Historical Village. She is a member of McKinney Creative Community and owner of www.dreamartglass.com
Art has always been in my DNA. I love to study color and line within my personal journey and the life I lead. I have studied many media’s but found a fascination with glass and Photography. They both have a common element of lighting that I am drawn to. “Glass has a way of dancing with the light and creating a song of its own”. : While photography captures light in a moment and records it for a lifetime.”
My work is a reflection of my personality. It evokes one to smile, laugh. It is the child in me.
Functional Art can be purchased at the Farmers Market of McKinney Texas located in Chestnut Square Historical Village every Saturday from 8 AM til noon.
Gallery work is sold at Orision’s Art Gallery located in Historical Downtown McKinney.
Studio is open by appointment only. Commissions are a way of live!
