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 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 BaughAaron WesterbergJeremy Lipking, Tim Deibler, Michelle Dunaway, Stanka Kordic, Dennis Perrin 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 the Netherlands and is invited to teach workshops across the U.S. at private studios and art centers including the Scottsdale Artists' School, Village Arts of Putney, The Art Students League of Denver,  Bountiful Davis Art Center and the Brush of Spring Hoosier Salon as well as internationally in Tuscany and Florence, Italy at The Florence Studio. Tina published her first instructional oil painting video in January 2019.
