Biography from a third party submitted on 05/22/2012:
Tina Close was born in Greenwich, CT in 1945. She began her self-taught career working directly from natural history subjects. Specimens gathered included botanicals, driftwood, insects, bones, lichen, mosses, feathers, and ancient shells. In the style of natural history illustration, these were painted to scale and with great detail. While painting hawthorn one day, she decided to add a butterfly. 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. She began to let her imagination run riot. No longer compelled to paint exactly what was set up, she began to impose color and design into a variety of subjects. Color on color, pattern on pattern, freed from exact interpretations. Close currently resides in Wyoming.
