Biography In 2012, based on her self-taught pastel portraiture, the Scottsdale Artists’ School awarded Tina the first of two merit scholarships and she began working in oil, immediately falling in love and hitting the ground running, dedicating 5 years to the full-time practice of understanding oil painting. In addition to various recognitions by the Portrait Society of America, Oil Painters of America, and National Oil and Acrylic Painters' Society, and the Art Renewal Center. In 2016, Tina earned a designation of ARC Associate Living Master from the Art Renewal Center and a Master Artist designation from the National Oil and Acrylic Painters’ Society. Tina has intently studied the Selective Start Method described in Alla Prima by Living Master Artist and Author Richard Schmid, studied in workshops and private lessons with Romel de la Torre, and workshops with Casey Baugh, Aaron Westerberg, Jeremy Lipking, Tim Deibler, Michelle Dunaway, Stanka Kordic and Kathy Anderson. In the course of her serious pursuit of fine art mastery, Tina has created a growing family of private collectors and commissioned clients in the U.S. and the U.K. and teaches workshops at top art centers across the U.S. such as the Scottsdale Artists' School, Village Arts Putney and New Harmony Hoosier Salon. Tina also teaches at the Florence Studio and private studios in Italy.
