I am a recent fan of Tina Mammoser. I find her artwork atmospheric and meditative, especially her coastal paintings. The play of light, shadow and color in her work is fabulous. Her background is interesting and she has discovered a way of melding all her loves (the coast/geology, bicycling, painting) into what makes up her life as an artist. I will definitely be purchasing one of her books - and someday would love to own an original painting.
