I’m Tina-Marie, an award winning artist and illustrator from London.
I have been drawing and painting since I could hold a pencil, you would always see me with my head in a colouring book as a child and every Christmas would mean I excitedly got a new set of felt pens or colouring pencils. I went on to do a GNVQ Advanced level in Art & design in my 20's, and then worked as head designer for a Label & print company for over 16 years, but still doing art in my spare time.
I entered the WWF national art competition and won the best young artist award, and came overall runner up in the commencing year. My coloured pencil art has also been featured in Colored Pencil magazine.
After a recent relocation to New Zealand, it gave me the opportunity to get back to drawing and creating. Now armed with some new tools like the Ipad Pro and Apple pencil, and the use of software like Photoshop and Procreate, I am able to digitally create my drawings, but because I come from a traditionally trained art background, I still like to keep that classic look and feel of an original piece of art, which has taken a good two years to perfect with lots of practice.
My other hobbies include being a Mum to humans and fur babies, running, health and well being, spending time at the beach and having lots of giggles.
On my webspace you will find some printable art, canvas prints, pet portraits, custom design services, Procreate tutorials, and give aways. Why not come and say hello on social media, where you will get to see my daily postings of drawings or time-lapse videos and hear of up and coming freebies.
Thanks for popping by, any questions please don't hesitate to ask.
Wishing you a wonderful day!
