Student Testimonials:

“I love your energy and your kindness. Thank you for encouraging us to do our best. Thanks for taking extra time on lunch and breaks to give us hints and tips and answering questions. Can't wait, and hope to make it to Tuscany [in 2017 to paint with you again]!”     — Jenny Hambleton, Salt Lake City, UT

“Tina is an extraordinary artist! She is open and honest about her methods and approaches to her work. I found her comments and direction during the workshop very helpful to me.”   — Rose Moore, Rio, IL

“Thank you, thank you, thank you! I learned so much at this workshop! You gave so many valuable tips and answered all my questions. I love the way you taught by demonstrating! I learned so much just being able to watch you paint. You are a wonderful artist and an inspiration to me.” — Amy Van Fossen, IA

“It pushed me to a higher level than I could imagine. Thanks for helping me keep the values accurate it has always been a challenge for me.” — Pat Deeter, Lee's Summit, MO

“Demonstrations for me are the best way I absorb information on the painting process. Although I worked in acrylic, I found all the information given easily adaptable to all mediums, especially in terms of color mixing. Thank you for your generosity in your style of teaching.” — Brad Bisbey, IA

“Tina, I cannot thank you enough for allowing me to attend your amazing workshop. Your warm, cheerful demeanor and refreshingly genuine personality made these past three days an absolute pleasure. The techniques and tricks, on how to handle oil paint , as well as how to achieve beautiful, rich skin tones will forever be implemented into my process. I very much appreciated the insights and wisdom on the difference between P.R. and marketing, on getting our artwork out there for potential collectors and clients. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!” Dean Larsen — UT

“Tina is very knowledgeable and insightful. She has a way of looking at a painting and problem solving in the simplest way.” — Shrina Baumann, UT

“I really appreciate Tina’s method of instruction helping me push outside my painting habits but keeping me from getting lost in the new knowledge. Some artists take classes that just don’t work for them. They may be frustrated and even give up painting all together. No matter where you are in your artistic journey, Tina will share with you what she has learned from master painters and you might just think twice!” — Glenn Adams, Blue Springs, MO


"Of all the workshops I have attended, I feel that this one made the largest and quickest influence in my work. At the end of day two, I felt that the small 4 inch section of a face I had done was the best work I've ever done! Thank you Tina, for your expertise, your generosity in sharing that with us and for your amazing heart"  — D.H., Texas

"Tina gave us valuable information, she made me feel like it was okay to not make a masterpiece during the workshop. I didn't even want to go to the restroom because I didn't want to miss anything!" — E.G., Missouri
