I am so happy to invite you into my Studio. If you’ve always wanted to go a bit deeper in creative pursuits and get more familiar with art materials or you’d like the opportunity to simply begin, I would love to work with you.
Though I’ve always been creative, I began making and selling art over 30 years ago to help supplement our income by doing small craft shows and to display in shoppes. I’ve created and sold furniture, accessories, artwork on canvas as well as murals. I kept this up, teaching myself through books and seeking out other creatives who were familiar with techniques and materials I wanted to know more about.
In these years, I’ve been blessed to work in the area of design, from creating stage sets, environments for churches, as well as designing living spaces tailored to the homeowner’s individual desires. I’ve had the opportunity to work in home décor retail as a lead designer and buyer as well as being a shoppe/Gallery owner and operator.
For the past few years, I’ve been diving deeper into increasing my own skill and vision as an artist by enrolling as a student in the Milan Art Institute. This lifelong learner perspective has served me well as I’ve had the pleasure and privilege to show my work locally as well as in North Carolina and was chosen in September of 2019 as featured artist and speaker at the Savannah Art Walk in Savannah, Georgia.
Currently, I live and work with my Friend and Husband of 37 years in a reclaimed church/schoolhouse that was built in 1844. I work and teach studio sessions in our home studio on the property. The main floor of our home is slowly transforming into a gallery space that will be open soon and is currently open by appointment.
I offer Studio Sessions from One on One opportunities (Coaching) to Creative Events for your “Tribe” (people you do life with), and scheduled workshops that focus on one off projects that teach an artful skill.
I offer introduction to Oil Painting, Acrylics, Assemblage Art, as well as Studio Practice
From Beginners to Experienced Creatives, I enjoy the opportunity to work and connect with Artful Souls.
I fully believe that “everyone” is creative in some way even if they are the people that claim “I can’t even draw a stick figure!” It’s ok….I’ll never ask you to draw a stick figure.
Creativity enhances life and is truly a gift to us and to others and I consider it a great honor to lift you up and assist you in enhancing your creative soul.

Trusting the Process,
"I did everything I could to purchase this piece after connecting with it during an event in our town. I knew right away that she was mine and created just for me. Tina worked with me on it and the day she came to install was so meaningful. This piece hangs in a prominent spot in my home and encourages me everyday. Not only did I have a connection to her art, now I have a new friend in the artist who created it."
"My wife surprised me with an incredible gift, a commissioned painting from our friend, Tina. She was given artistic freedom and blew my expectations away with her masterpiece we proudly display in our home!"
"...I LOVE this painting! So happy and blessed to own a Tina Lawver original! This is the first original painting I have ever purchased! I love the teal, the gold, the layering, the collage work, all your creativity expressed in such a sweet, inspiring way!..."
