John Tobin: Takes Two to Tango

by Shannon Bowman

John Tobin and his wife Carolyn Flowers have lived the life most have dreamed of. The two met in a clay art class at Old Dominion University. It was his work, even back then in the early 1970s, that caught her eye. After studying art for a few years, the two traveled to Japan and Germany to pursue a career in art education with the Department of Defense Dependent Schools.

Working with the students and watching them develop their skills as artists was a rewarding experience that they wouldn't realize until years later, once several of the students found them online.
