The Artist Says:

"Tina Garrett is one amazing artist. I've been in art and art education my entire life. (I remember drawing before grade school.) Taught everything from life drawing, painting and sculpture but excelled in ceramics and blown glass. I always admired students who excelled in realistic painting. Tina is the best I've seen in the modern world. Her talent equals the great Dutch and Italian Renaissance paintings I've admired in the great museums of Europe!" — Vernon Brejcha, Kansas
“Tina is a beautiful artist with incredible talent! Her paintings are so much more than pretty pictures, but magnificent and genuine works of art. Her true gift makes me one of her biggest fans! She is the real deal.”  — Tom Tierney, Publisher Art of The West Magazine
“One of the "perks" of being in the gallery business and in the art publishing business the past 13 years is that I have had the opportunity to sit in on many workshops and demonstrations by artists all over the country. I never miss a chance to watch Tina in action. I like her confidence, her knowledge, her enthusiasm and most of all her results. I've never heard anything but compliments from her workshop participants. I first met Tina while she was taking a workshop in Scottsdale. I was more than happy several years later to highly recommend that she teach workshops. I should also add that I just really enjoy Tina's paintings!” — Scott Jones, Owner, Gallery Wild, Jackson Hole, Wyoming


Collectors Say:

"Tina,We unpackaged "I Love NYC" last night and WOW, what a great painting.The more we look at it the more we appreciate your talent and creativity.The quality and nuances and intricacies of the painting are fantastic;  and the highlighted stiletto heel is just brilliant.The framing and packaging/shipping  and the email communication were also very professional, as were the attention to details, like the fact that it's ready to hang.We're glad we learned about you in the Southwest Art Magazine's article on Emerging Artists, and were curious as to what you have coming in the near future.
Once again, thank you for a wonderful work of art, and we'll talk with you soon." — Pam and Ken DeFeyter

Tina Garrettb. 1974
Tina Garrett is one of the most well recognized women artists in Contemporary Western Art. Her works center on emotion and mood, and they often contain dramatic light or atmospheric effects. Her works tend to carry with them an undefinable reverberation, haunting and laced with mystery. Being highly skilled as a Contemporary Representational artist, Tina has earned recognition as an Art Renewal Center Living Master, (ARCLM) and holds a Master Artist designation from the National Oil and Acrylic Painters' Society. From 2017 to 2021 Tina was a proud State Ambassador for the Portrait Society of America and she is honored to be a mentor for the PSoA Cecilia Beaux Forum Mentoring Program. 
Born in 1974 in San Diego, California, USA, her hands still bear the scars from when she was knocked out of her mother’s arms and into a campfire at age two. Suffering third degree burns on her hands and lower arms, nothing could keep Tina from drawing as a child to transcend the ugliness of life’s trials. She hid her scars for most of her childhood, but it is with courage that Tina uses those same hands and all of her life’s experience to paint a more idealized existence.
Tina holds an Associate of Applied Science in Visual Communication from the Colorado Institute of Art Denver. She has studied intently in the Selective Start Method described in Alla Prima by Living Master Artist and author Richard Schmid, and was inducted as a Putney Painter in 2020. Tina studied in workshops and/or in private lessons with Romel de la Torre, Casey Baugh, Aaron Westerberg, Jeremy Lipking, Dennis Perrin, Michelle Dunaway, Stanka Kordic, Kathy Anderson and Daniel Keys.
