Tina McIntire Studios's Profile
Tina McIntire was born in Duncan, Oklahoma in 1962. The internationally recognized artist grew up in Fort Worth but spent holidays and weekend in Oklahoma at her grandparents’ farm. It was there that her experiences with red earth of Oklahoma initiated her journey within, helping her in discovering her ancestry and fueling her deep affinity and respect for the earth.
Tina’s style is as diverse as her personality and her work is a reflection of her studies of Celtic and Native American symbology, including that of the ancient Mandala, or medicine wheel. Her celebrated and unmatched eye for color is the direct result of her hypersensitivity to light.
Tina’s brilliantly colored mosaics are featured in award-winning, independent film World Without Waves by Fort Worth film maker Mitchell Johnson. She is a featured artist starring on HGTV’s That’s So Clever and DIY Network’s Crafters Coast to Coast. Tina was the featured artist for Schola Cantorum’s 45th anniversary and creator of “Sapphire Sky.” Her work has also appeared in Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Southern Living Magazine and the Dallas Morning News.
Tina is a self-taught artist and the originator of the mixed media stained glass free-form mosaic style. She has recently begun adding precious and semi-precious gems to her work. Her most recent pieces include furniture, windows, custom back-splashes, vases, murals and many other home décor items. Her work is available at select local galleries or by private commission. She teaches classes at Texas Christian University and at workshops to students of all ages throughout Texas.
Some of her work has also been sold to such celebrities as Erykah Badu, Dwight Yokumm and Greg Keneer.
