Coby Beck lives with his wife and two young children in Hobart, the capital of Australia’s island state of Tasmania. Born in 1965 in Minneapolis, USA, Coby moved to Canada at the age of four bringing his mother, father and two brothers with him to live in Alberta and grow up in the forested hills of Bragg Creek.
After moving to Victoria to attend university and obtain a Bachelor’s degree in Music, Coby stayed in British Columbia earning a living as a tree planter for most of a decade.
Somehow, a music degree and career in tree-planting lead to computer studies and a specialty in Artificial Intelligence. Throughout his life, Coby has had an interest in photography in many styles, from nature and landscapes to urban scenes and abstract. His “Painting With Water” project began in the mid 2000’s.”
