American painter Tina Steele Lindsey grew up in the deep south with parents who painted, but her own leanings as an adolescent were more toward dance and music. Her mother well understood the value of the arts and encouraged her by providing countless trips to lessons, recitals, symphony and museums. It was much later in life her introduction to painting came when her father introduced her to Russian impressionism, a style beautiful in its depiction of the human spirit. Most enamored by the work of the Russian impressionists she went forward with independent study of the human figure and various painting methods. A traditionalist at heart, Tina’s focus is both representational and abstract, switching between the two when mood or subject dictates. Her contemporary paintings are compellingly timeless, have been seen in print and television, and are publicly and privately collected.
Having been represented by galleries throughout her career, Tina is currently focused on commissioned works.
The fundamental basics of realism drives my artistic expression no matter the genre. My work is in constant flux, however one thing has remained consistent over the years, simplicity in composition, the more complicated the world becomes, the less complicated I become in the studio. – Tina Steele Lindsey
