A native Texan, Tina Bohlman has used the state in which she was raised as both the inspiration and the canvas for her art. Mostly a self-taught artist, Bohlman uses watercolor to create her breathtaking plein air paintings and brilliant rural landscapes. She cultivated her natural artistic talent and her eye for beauty with great dedication and an insatiable desire to learn the techniques and history of the art. Bohlman has supplemented her independent study with workshops conducted by some of the best artists in the field, including Jan Kuntz, Tom Lynch and Irving Shapiro. A veteran of numerous competition plein air and “quick draw” events annually, including, Plein Air Southwest–Outdoor Painters Society, Sedona Plein Air Festival-Sedona, Arizona, and Paint The Parks-Estes Park, Colorado, she prefers plein air rather than working in the studio.
A gifted teacher as well as an accomplished artist, Tina’s outgoing and friendly personality is why she is frequently a guest artist for painting demonstrations and watercolor workshops.
With her dedicated attitude, skills and talent, Bohlman has made quite an impact in her field. Over the past thirty-five years, she has earned more than 60 awards, including a dozen First Place and four Best in Show titles. In addition to exhibiting, competition and taking commissions for her work, she is the founder and chairman of the annual "Paint Historic Waxahachie", a 10 day plein air event that showcases more than 40 artists. Her work is collected worldwide with originals hanging in private and corporate collections in34 States, Canada, Mexico, United Kingdom, Portugal, Germany, Australia, New Zealand and Republic of Benin, West Africa.
She is a member of several arts organizations including Outdoor Painters Society(Signature Member), Artists of Texas, Contemporary Fine Art International, Landscape Artists International, International Plein Air Painters, American Women Artists, Associate Member of Women Artists of the West, Southwestern Watercolor Society, Desoto Art League and Ellis County Art Association.
