My name is Tina (a.k.a.. Art Chick) and I am a 40-something gal who has always had a passion for the arts and anything creative. I love Art Journaling, mixed media, oils and watercolors. I also dabble in altered art, digital art, and photography, when the appropriate muse strikes. Sometimes I even create stained glass and many types of crafts. I also doodle a lot, especially while talking on the phone. I'm wild like that.
I have a BS in Art Education, as well as a Masters in Education. I was an art educator for ten years, before leaving the profession to try my hand at other things. I do have the itch to teach again, so we'll see where that path may lead. But for now, I am content to be at home, hanging out with my granddaughter, blogging, and "playing" in my studio.
My philosophy of Art is simple: Anyone can make Art. Some people have a whole lot of natural skills and talent. Others may have a strong desire to be creative, but have to work a little bit harder. But either way, anyone can make Art. If you focus more on just being creative, and less on how "good" your creations are, then you will be much happier with what you create. It's really more about the journey than the destination. So love the journey!
