From the artist, with Art Renewal Center

Tina Spratt is an award-winning artist best known for her paintings of the female figure, either in oils or pastel. Her subjects are often lost in introspection or surrounded by the textures of a myriad of fabrics. Her works have been exhibited at Sotheby’s Los Angeles, The European Museum of Modern Art (MEAM) in Barcelona, Spain and the Salmagundi Club, NYC as part of the Art Renewal Center Salon exhibitions, as well as at other prestigious venues including the Wausau Museum of Contemporary Art, WI, the Zhou B art Center, Chicago, IL , and the International Pastel Artists Exhibition in Tivoli, Italy. She has participated in numerous gallery exhibitions with showings at Contemporary Fine Art Eton, UK, Oisin Gallery, Ireland, Alexander Gallery, UK, Lovetts Gallery, Oklahoma, Principle Gallery, Charleston, SC, Abend Gallery, Denver, CO and Haynes Gallery, London among others.

“I have always been drawn to the female figure in my work,” she has said, “ and I hope to recreate the beauty and integrity of a simple, everyday intimacy. I am fascinated with trying to capture the different emotions that are present in solitude, when we're more able to be at one with ourselves. I hope to portray my subject as vulnerable but also with strength."
