Rena Tobey's bio:

Rena Tobey earned a PhD in another field before turning her research attention to American art history.  Through five years of academic retooling, Rena focused on resuscitating the careers of barely-remembered American women artists working before 1945.  Now she is publishing a seven-essay series in Art Times Journal called “Finding Her Way,” inspired by these accomplished artists.  Rena is also a playwright, and a recent work “Muses” has emerged from her research.  Just for fun, she is creating Artventures™--a tabletop board game on the adventures of art and art history.  Visit www.renatobey.com to learn more.
