The majority of my work involves nature. Since I was a child I loved hiking in the woods or sitting on the beach. Either watching the birds or the waves break. I love to paint outdoors whenever I can.
Our lives today are always on the go. It is my hope that my paintings gives the viewer the opportuntity to stop, take a breath,and enjoy.
Tina enjoys creating mono-prints and mono-types. After years of working with different printmaking forms such as lithographs, she has developed a style all her own. To create a mono-type she first paints a picture on a surface of a thin plate which she then transfers to paper using an etching press. These are all one of a kind. The mono prints are combined with another printing form for instance etching and a rainbow roll. This medium leaves a lot of room for experimenting.
