I live in the wonderful community of Edmonds, Washington, next to the Puget Sound. I work in a variety of media: acrylics, oils, watercolors, and stained glass. I share my love for art with the local community through classes, retreats, and fundraising and awareness projects. I enjoy painting landscapes as well as the simple, daily moments in life. As an animal lover, I am especially pleased with the success of my commissioned pet portraits that allow me to pay it forward by giving part of my proceeds to animal welfare organizations.
My work is inspired by travels abroad, my home with my family and feline friends, and all the glorious natural environment in which we live. I love the challenge and opportunity for growth that every painting and glass panel brings me. My goal is to convey the joy and wonder that I feel to others through my work.

Art in the Community:
November 2015 to current – Co-Chair for Edmonds Art Studio Tour
2009 to 2012 – Taught art classes to highly capable students at Terrace Park Elementary School.
2006 to 2010 – Taught classes in creating mandala drawing at the local community center, spiritual retreats, and in elementary school classes.
2007 to 2008 – Conceived and orchestrated the publication of The Women of Mary’s Place, a book of stories about 16 homeless and formerly homeless Seattle women, with accompanying portraits painted by 16 women artists. This was a labor of love to bring more awareness and beauty to these women who are invisible to most of us. 100% of the proceeds from the sale of these books went directly to support the day shelter where these women find support and refuge.
The Women of Mary’s Place: Portraits From a Journey in Which Sixteen Women Artists and Sixteen Homeless and Formerly Homeless Women of Seattle Participated – By Tina Marohn (located in the University of Washington Special Collections).
