April 7, 2016

 

Meet Tina Silverman, a painter and bead artist located in the Gateway Arts District at the 39th Street Gallery & Studios. Find out how she discovered her art, what drives her, and current works in progress.

          

How did you discover the medium you currently work in?

 

It is through a culmination of a lifelong interests in fiber, paint and paper.

 

How do you define "artist"?

 

An artist is an individual who is a committed practitioner of the creative process.   

 

How did you discover the Gateway Arts District?

 

I rent a studio in the Gateway Arts District.       

 

If you could give your younger self a piece of advice about being an artist, what would it be?

 

I would tell my younger self that “Creating art is work that you love. Get to work!”

          

What drives you?

 

I am 66 years old and have a rather short arc before I can no longer do all the things I want to do visually. Now that is a huge motive for someone who loves to look at the world in a state of awe.   Focus.

 

What is your greatest challenge as an artist?

 

My greatest challenge is that there are so many intriguing ideas.      

 

What are you working on right now?

 

I am currently working on mixed media portraits with audio.
