The Artist – Tina Osborne
Bio and Artistic Perspective 2022
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 multi-media painted surfaces.
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. She is a multi-media artist using watercolour, acrylic, couloured pencil, pastel and inks.
