Toby Boothman was born in 1973 in Bristol, England. In 1994, he went to study arts under the direction of Master Patrick Betaudier in Monflanquin,, France. There he studied a modern version of Renaissance technique which is called the Technique Mixed. He says that “Master Patrick Betaudier not only taught me how to paint and draw but also taught me how to see things, from then technique has become a very important factor in my painting, since discovering it; I have enjoyed painting a variety of subjects, mainly figurative but also still life”.
Currently he lives in South of France.
