From paintings of the English coast, to Lake Michigan in Chicago, to Venice, Tina's paintings transform actual places into simplified visions of the very element that defines them – water. Abstractions of weather and season at the sea, the paintings are all about spaces of line, colour and light rather than direct landscape. Tina was born in 1970 in Chicago, USA and immigrated to the UK in my early 20s. She started painting after moving from Scotland down to London, studying painting and printmaking privately with an artist in Greenwich, London. The paintings have been shown at galleries across the country and are collected internationally. Past exhibitions have included the Pastel Society, Royal Society of Marine Artists, the National Maritime Museum, Dulwich Picture Gallery and the Gallery on Cork Street. Tina has academic qualifications in biology, physics, design and literature. She is a listed artist in the UK on the AXIS database of professional artists (www.axisweb.org.uk), and a member of DACS.
