Welcome to my colorful world of contemporary paintings. My name is Tina Rawson and I am a Swedish-American artist who is passionate about creating vibrant paintings that captivate and capture memories. As a female artist and educator, I believe in the power of art to connect people and spark meaningful conversations.

Teacher, Artist, Mother

Art is my preferred mode of expression. I am a teacher by training and experience, a mother by choice and an artist by dint of lots of hard work and lucky genes. My mother, grandfather, and great aunt were all visual artists; and on my father's side were the actors. I didn't inherit the acting genes but I appreciate all of the arts and love passing on the fun to others, whether it be through a beautiful painting, a commissioned piece, a live event painting or a workshop or a kids class. 

It's a blast sharing creativity with others. Here's what some people said recently about my workshop:

  • Fun event to attend with a friend. Tina was a great teacher

  • The hands-on painting activity (was the best part)

  • It was fun and relaxing

  • Enjoy painting. Nice to learn about Scandinavian folk painting and do one

  • The teacher was friendly and knowledgeable. She provided all the necessary supplies for her class as well as examples. My classmates were a creative and fun group.

Color, movement and joy sum up my work. I love being outside in nature and capturing that moment. Right now I'm exploring the sea. Mythology excites me as does painting portraiture. Lovely landscapes move me and capturing the right color combination to make something leap off the page is the goal. I love to teach art too! Check out my events!


I offer classes in:

Folk Art

Kids Art

Workshops, private lessons and a NEW RETREAT on Saturday, 8/17 on Swedish Folk Art
