Tina is a self-taught, professional natural history and botanical artist who also offers illuminated letter design with gold leaf. Since 2005, when she  turned professional, Tina has been successful at many national and local exhibitions, and her paintings have been sold to clients worldwide. Two artworks were chosen by the Wentworth Puzzle Co. (2011–2014) and listed in their Summer Catalogue of the famous wooden ‘Whimsy’ jigsaw puzzles. She has designed and handcrafted her own and unique magnetic ‘Diweji’ jigsaw puzzle. A lily painting was chosen (2011-2014) by Ling Design for card and notelet production, and in 2010 she received a Certificate of Botanical Merit at the Society of Botanical Artist’s annual exhibition, London. Her work has featured twice in Artists and Illustrators Magazine Port Folio section, once as picture of the month. Several works were contracted to Felix Rosenstiel’s Widow & Son (2011-2012); she is listed in the 35th edition of Who’s Who in Art and in the 37th edition of the Dictionary of International Biography.
