Tina is a graduate of Herron School of Art and Design in Indianapolis. Her main body of work explores the figure and portraiture. She is interested in the challenge of capturing the true personality of an individual - not the posed facade they often present to the world. She studies expressions and body language. Often spending long periods of time capturing video footage of the person she is painting until those unconscious moments and expressions are revealed. She works primarily in oil and also enjoys drawing with graphite.
