ABOUT TINA BOHLMAN:
“While it’s important to look ahead and plan for the future, an artist must also be “in the moment…the now. My absolute favorite thing to do is paint on location. My absolute 2nd favorite thing to do is share my knowledge and skills with others. I love to teach. Through lectures, discussions, demonstrations and mentoring, I strive to give students the confidence to expand and experiment; to paint boldly; to become friends with that “inner critic”. It’s exciting to watch when someone realizes they have progressed to the next level - seeing the big smile on their face is very rewarding.“
A native Texan, Tina Bohlman has used the state in which she was raised as both the inspiration and the canvas for her art. A self-taught artist, Bohlman works in both watercolor and oil to create breathtaking plein air paintings and brilliant rural landscapes. She cultivated her natural ability and eye for beauty with great dedication and an insatiable desire to learn the techniques and history of the art. Bohlman has supplemented her independent study with workshops conducted by some of the best artists in the field, including Jan Kuntz, Tom Lynch, Jill Carver and the late Irving Shapiro (d.1994). She prefers plein air rather than working in the studio and is a veteran of numerous competition plein air and “quick draw” events including, Plein Air Southwest–Outdoor Painters Society, Sedona Plein Air Festival-Sedona, Arizona, Paint The Parks-Estes Park, Colorado, En Plein Air Texas-San Angelo, TX and Plein Air Easton-Easton MD.
Her dedication combined with a lifetime of experience, Bohlman has made quite an impact in her field. After receiving her first award at the beginning of her career in 1972, she has since earned over 80 awards, including more than a dozen First Place and 6 Best in Show titles. Her work is collected worldwide; Bohlman originals hang in private and corporate collections in 34 States, Canada, Mexico, United Kingdom, Portugal, Germany, Australia, New Zealand and Republic of Benin, West Africa.
