She has taught architecture at the University of California at Berkeley, Columbia University and the California College of Arts and Crafts. Toby is a graduate of Barnard College and the University of California Berkeley College of Environmental Design. Toby's extensive travels in Europe, Southeast Asia, Central Asia and Japan, amongst other parts of the world, have infused her sense of design as well as her watercolors.

"Watercolors allow me to study the built world and how it is seen in its setting. As an architect, I design buildings but they come to life when they are lit by the sun. Whether it is a building in the landscape, a portion of a structure or and interior detail, it comes alive as it is illuminated, and that is what I am trying to understand and capture."
