WELCOME

Hello and welcome to my website.

 

I'm Tina Revie—a Canadian artist painting and teaching in my Cambridge, Ontario studio.

On my website you will find four galleries of my art—Abstracts, Landscapes, Florals and Animals in Art.
I work primarily in acrylics because it allows me the freedom of layering thin washes of colour and slowly building the shape and form for a smooth transition from light to dark. Acrylic paint can be blended so beautifully!

 

Many pieces are available for sale. Size and price are available by clicking on each image.

 

If you don't see what you're looking for, I am available to do commissions. Just complete the contact form and I will get in touch with you.

I hope you enjoy your visit!

About Me

Born in Hamilton, Ontario, I have been developing my artistic talent since childhood. As a young adult continuing my education in Art and Art History, I found encouragement from my teachers and fellow students.

Painting has always been a passion throughout the years. In 2004, I was able to pursue my passion on a full time basis.

My formal training has included the Dundas Valley School of Art where I completed my Certificate Level in 2010.

My Techniques

I love to paint with bold, loose and whimsical strokes of the brush. I paint primarily in acrylic and oils working in a colourful and sometimes whimsical style. In my recent work, I have incorporated mixed media techniques using pens, inks, markers and chalk. 

I am currently exploring and playing with new techniques, creating interesting textures and using mixed media in my abstracts. I love the process of mark making and painting intuitively. Just letting it flow. Aspiring to create art to bring people joy while at the same time offering a glimpse into my soul.

My Inspirations

Much of my inspiration has come from rural settings and my own gardens. Inspiration comes from tiny glimpse of nearby hidden places often forgotten. My paintings are a process of exploration and self expression, always evolving and taking new directions. My work is a direct response to the colour, form, and beauty in nature that surrounds me. A walk in the forest, a splash in the pond, a flower emerging, the sky turning blue to pink.

 

In the summer of 2017, I had the distinct pleasure of visiting Italy, my ancestral homeland. I discovered new inspiration of using a different colour palette, pertinent to the light and shapes of the Sicilian and Tuscan landscapes. My passion for the people and landscape will keep me busy for years, recording my memories on canvas.
