About Artist/Instructor Tina Trahan
My artistic journey goes as far back as I can remember.
I have always considered myself an Artist.
I find great joy in creating art, exploring techniques, composition, and seeing beauty in bold jubilent colors.
I continue to pursue my LOVE of ART by reading art related books, taking work shops, and classes... never stop learning!
I find that being an artist is so rewarding and fulfilling.
The beauty of adding original art to any room absolutely changes the feel of the room.
If you have ever bought a piece of original art you know exactly what I am referring to.
My art work inspires happiness, hope and strength... the "what could be"... to, Dream in Colour
with the painterly brush or knife stokes of bold clean colors.
I really enjoy some texture in my unique approach to creating professional art.
I would say my style is ABSTRACT REALISM.
I continue entering various art competitions and art exhibits and have enjoyed getting to know so many talented artist.
It has always been my goal to encourage others to be expressive and creative,
having taught classes for children and adults
from beginner to intermediate in graphite, oil, acrylic, watercolor and mixed media for
over 25 years.
I was trained in Faux finishing techniques in Atlanta, Georgia and Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
I recently reopened my studio (LaToscana' Studio)
after being closed for in person classes due to the pandemic
and have thoroughly enjoyed seeing my returning Studio Artist
and meeting all the new Studio Artist coming in.
I am in awe as I watch them succeed in developing their artistic skills and personal style.
The joy and fulfillment that comes from creating art is unmeasurable,
and it can afford us peace and a uniqueness
that can only be experience to truly understand.
