Travels to northern Ontario and Europe inspire her work, which is characterized by use of colour, mood creation and representational style.
“Painting watercolours allows the nuances of nature to unfold. I am continually intrigued by the play of light on water, the shadows in foliage, the changeability of skies and the vibrancy or subtlety of colour. As a medium, watercolour permits me to experiment capturing transparency and form. My paintings celebrate not only the energy and vitality of life, but its serenity and harmony.”
Educated at Queen’s University, the University of Waterloo and the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, Tiina is a former educator.
