Growing up with a paint brush in her hand, Tina continues to create daily with her mother and 12-year-old daughter, Addison. Her latest artistic expression has come from the heart. Her daughter Addison was recently diagnosed with scoliosis. Her family’s challenging journey with the experience has influenced Tina’s current series of mixed media collages, which combines her daughter’s spine MRI images with vintage postcard flowers and hand-drawn focal points. “I hope to raise awareness for scoliosis through my artwork, and show the beauty of our journey, and how much it has opened my heart,” she says.
