About Artist Tina Trahan

 I  love being creative, I began drawing and painting at a young age. I still LOVE to experiment with color and composition. I have continued painting and taking classes from local instructors and entering various competitions and exhibitions. It has always been my goal to encourage others to be expressive and creative, having taught art classes for children and adults from beginner to intermediate in oil, acrylic, and mixed media. I was trained in faux finishing techniques in Atlanta, Georgia and Baton Rouge, Louisiana. 

 I have ~ Participated in various festivals, juried competitions, exhibitions and gallery shows in Lafayette, Rayne, Crowley, Gueydan, Kaplan, Abbeville, Baton Rouge and New Orleans LA.

 I have ~ Painted commercial and residential murals.  

I have  ~ Illustrated a children’s book that was used as an App for iphones and ipads.

My art studio is located in Youngsville, Louisiana.
