Tina Myers is a North Canton resident and busy mother of three daughters. She is a self-taught artist who works mainly in acrylics and some mixed media to create her abstract, expressionist and somewhat cubist works. Tina has shared artwork with her local community through First Row Center for the Arts in Greentown, Jupiter Studios in Alliance, Studio 2091 in Cuyahoga Falls, and Nine Muses in Barberton. She has participated in The Little Art Gallery’s May show, Art at the Airport, Illuminated Windows in Canton, Canton Museum’s “gARTen of Good and Evil” rooftop event, the Akron Art Prize, and the Stark County Artists Exhibition at the Massillon Museum. Her most recent solo show took her to Lynden Gallery in Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania.

Artist Statement:
My artwork is a therapeutic process in which I allow myself the freedom to simply begin with applying colors, shapes and textures of acrylic paint that are pleasing to my senses. I pause and step back many times to observe and determine what direction the piece is taking. Sometimes I will find that a city, a face, or a figure, appear. I allow the work to evolve and take its own form until I am satisfied with the results. There are usually several layers of changes involved in this process. I am often inspired by human figures, facial features and architectural structures. These forms evoke a desire to imitate out of admiration, in my own experimental style of color and expression.
