Ties to her Judaism and Femininity are strongly suggested throughout the paintings. It has been frequently noted that her work evokes a poignant sense of nostalgia and sentiment, even longing in the viewer, as the pieces appear to be laced with 'familiarity'.
Her masterful use of color, shape, and flat frontal weight, has earned her much acclaim among critics and collectors, likening her continuously to the 'French Fauvists'.
As one becomes aware of Toby Gotesman Schneier's background, being the daughter of Holocaust Survivors, as well as a formidable and recognized figure in religious and political life.
Having co-founded and built the "acclaimed Hampton Synagogue", among other esteemed projects, one can begin to understand and decipher a level of "coding" and "mission" embedded within the paintings. Never knowing for certain whether the area in question was somehow accidental or purely strategic, this kind of "intriguing symbolism" has become a signature of Gotesman Schneier's work.
Her paintings are housed in several 'known', private collections and have been exhibited in distinguished galleries nationwide.
