Tina Garrett was born in 1974 in San Diego, California, USA. Her hands still bear the scars from when she was knocked out of her mother’s arms and into a campfire at age two. Suffering third degree burns on her hands and lower arms, nothing could keep Tina from painting the works that help her transcend the ugliness of life’s trials. She hid her scars for most of her childhood, but it is with courage that Tina uses those same hands and all of her life’s experience to paint a more idealized existence. Tina holds an Associate of Applied Science in Visual Communication from the Colorado Institute of Art Denver. Tina’s works have received recognition by major art organizations with awards such as the Art Renewal Center FWSD Award and three ARC Salon Purchase Awards; Women Artists of the West National Exhibition (Best of Show) and First Prize Awards; Oil Painters of America Online Showcase 1st Prize and 3rd Prizes; Portrait Society of America Select 50 and 7th Honorable Mention; National Oil and Acrylic Painters’ Society Awards of Excellence, 2nd Prize, People’s Choice and Most Innovative Awards; and International Artist Magazine People and Figures Grand Prize Winner. Tina’s works have participated in shows around the world including the ARC Salon International Exhibition at Sotheby’s NYC; Figurativas and Mod Portrait at the Museum of Modern Art Europe (MEAM); Oil Painters of America National Exhibition at Cutter & Cutter Galleries; Portrait Society of America Members Only Exhibition; American Women Artists “Making Their Mark” at the Booth Museum of Western Art; Women Artists of the West National at the Museum of Western Art; the American Miniatures Show at Settlers West Galleries in Tucson, AZ; Urban Aspect Exhibition at Principle Gallery; and Go Wild! Exhibition at Gormley’s Galleries in Belfast and Dublin, Ireland. Tina has been interviewed by several media outlets including “International Artist Magazine,” “Southwest Art Magazine,” “American Art Collector Magazine,” “Art of the West Magazine” as well as TV interviews with the Kansas City NBC and CBS affiliate stations. Tina teaches oil painting across the US and abroad at fine art ateliers such as The Scottsdale Artists School, Village Arts of Putney, The Florence Studio Italy, and The Dutch Atelier of Realist Art Netherlands.
