From an interview with Ms. Toebbe she is quoted as saying: I paint because I am not good at complicating things or complicated things, like conceptual art or video. I like painting because it is about getting things organized. I paint from memory and I use the routines, repetitions and sameness of everyday life as inspiration because the more time I spend in place, the better I can remember it.
