Linnea Tober

We are all creative beings, artists. Every one of us has the innate desire to express what is inside of us. Creative visual art is my sanctuary, my way down the rabbit hole, my salvation. Bold colors consistently make their way into my work, I could not breathe without being surrounded by color. I believe the true photographer moves to get the end result they want. They do not wait for the shot to happen, they CREATE it. I am a colorist at heart and thrive when playing with unusual color combinations. My photography works focus mainly on nature, the intricate textures, shapes and shadows she creates on her own. I shoot these subjects always thinking of what I can transform them into…what they will become. I then twist, tweak and ‘morph’ them into my unique designs. Sometimes you can decipher the original subject and many times not at all. It depends on where the muse guides me. <3
