Silk Scarves and Paintings
Tina Christiansen is a painter of watercolors and acrylic works of fine art. Her professional perspective is one of being both a practicing architect and an artist for 40 years. Her work is most often about the sea. Her work has been recognized nationally by private, public and corporate collectors.
She also produces a wearable art fashion line of 100% silk scarves. Her textile designs are sold in fine art galleries, resort hotels and art museum stores on the west coast. Her artwork is grounded in a solid understanding of perspective, anatomy and the optics of light.
Tina holds Master's and Bachelor's degrees in Architecture from Virginia Tech and the University of Florida respectively. Read about her artistic philosophy in the X-ray Dive Magazine online at http://www.xray-mag.com/content/tina-christiansen-portfolio.
