A LITTLE ABOUT TINA HAYS –

Tina Hays is a mixed media visual artist, painter and teacher, working in Issaquah WA. She loves creating art that inspires a second look, in appreciation of the natural world. Additionally, Tina enjoys creating collages with vintage print materials, interpreting images and themes from the 50's-70's, while re-assembling for the modern viewer. She believes in valuing and trusting the process for each artistic piece, and hopes to inspire others in believing EVERYONE is CREATIVE!
