Biography   Tina Close


Tina Close was born in Greenwich, CT in 1945. She began her self-taught career working directly from natural history subjects.

Finding the size and shape she was looking for, the colors were not quite right for the piece. She used the form and changed the color. It was the first step in a new direction for her.
