The Artist – Tina Osborne
Bio and Artistic Perspective 2018
Tina, after 35 years of training, management and director experience with the Federal Public Service, continued her largely self-taught personal art experiences and augmented that with jewellery design, wearable art and music creation.
Tina has been strongly influenced by her two year naturalist experience as ‘Artist in the Park’ at Presqu’ile Provincial Park, where her Garden and botanical art were first expressed. In addition to painting animals, and people, aquascapes and landscapes, many of her other works also express inner landscapes, and have recently in 2018 incorporated poured painting techniques into her creations.
Work has won awards at juried shows and have also been hung in the Expressions, Parrot Gallery (most recently 2018) and Belleville Art Association Juried Shows, all in Belleville; Art in the County, Picton and in the Impresario Gallery, Cobourg. She has also participated in Art in the Community in Belleville, Picton and Brighton as well as produced work for the Quinte Reclamation Project and various other causes and events.Tina also enjoys participating in the Picton Horticultural Shows (2014-2016) and will be a vendor at the Kingston 2018 Ontario Regional Horticultural Show.
