From before I can remember I have loved drawing and being challenged to make life better through creativity. Every holiday had hand-made cards and decorated cookies for friends and family. I feel this is reflected in my work as well. My angels are to encourage others to feel safe, calm and even joy-filled. My pantry preserves are to encourage abundance and safety in the home as well. In a world of discontent, I would like to think art can bring an inner sense of hope for tomorrow to those who look at them. I feel my work is a medium others can relate to, cherish and enjoy without even knowing how it may be changing them from within. Every piece holds a silent prayer of peace hope, safety, and joy.
Graduating from Northern Illinois University with a BFA I have continued to be creative with many forms of artistic medium. My artwork has been displayed in several galleries across the Midwest and can be viewed online at www.TinaMarieGallery.org. My husband and I live in Prescott AZ and return to the Midwest often to visit family and friends.
