Tina Leigh Heiland M.S., M.Ed.
I am an artist, designer, educator, and entrepreneur. I Have been involved with art for pretty much my entire life. I have been lucky enough to be surrounded by artists and musicians that have encouraged me to explore my creativity. I am in my 22nd year of teaching and have taught both high school and college level courses in digital and traditional art. I have a degree in art and have been formally trained as well as self-taught in various areas. I enjoy trying and mastering new techniques and mediums in art and design. I am interested in combining what I have learned in the digital world along with traditional art. I enjoy learning about art history, movements, and artists from the present and past. I am currently working with illustration, graphic design, 3D and edible art.
