Get To Know Tine Kirkland Graham
| T i n e K i r k l a n d G r a h a m |
Full disclosure - Tine Kirkland Graham is Kelsey's & my grandma. We grew up surrounded by her artwork and inspired by her creativity - she never missed an opportunity to put my siblings and I in front of a canvas. Tine (oof, not used to calling her that - bear with me) has been developing her skills and style for the last 40+ years. She started out as most artists do - learning the basics, lots of bowls of fruit and floral arrangements. Once she started doing oil pastel portraits - she began to gain recognition in the Harding Township and Morristown communities. With each new project, her style developed into one similar to some of her artistic idols - Picasso & Matisse.
Tine has shown her work in galleries & spaces across New Jersey, in the quaint galleries of Nantucket, and in a variety of galleries in Amelia Island, Florida - just to name a few. Tine's creativity is fed by the sounds of the ocean, the unique way a person's hair falls, the shapes of boats floating along the water, and the essence of a person. She is a true observer.
You can often find Tine participating in community events, diligently working in her studio, enjoying a hot cup of tea on her deck, or sketching one of the many passerby at restaurants, hair salons, parks, practically everywhere!
I picture Tine's work in the homes of people who are looking for a bold splash of color, in the collections of beach lovers, and pretty much any small business that's near a beach!
