About Tina Sanders 

Artist's Statement

As a gardener, I am drawn to textures and colour – whether they are in my garden or in my artwork. My style tends to be loose and impressionistic, demonstrating to the viewer the subject’s essence rather than following strict lines and shapes.

I like to experiment with different mediums such as watercolour, paper, encaustic, and acrylic to create my version of nature.

Biography

Tina is a self-employed website and marketing consultant who did not like art as a child.  After being exposed to an art therapy program, she started her journey as an artist with a botanical watercolour class at a local gardening store.

Her work has been displayed online through Gallery Ring, Society of Canadian Artists and in various juried and non-juried shows in Toronto, Richmond Hill and Markham. She is a member of the Society of Canadian Artists and the Richmond Hill Group of Artists (RHGA).
