Am. b. 1947
Tina Ingraham was born in Ohio in 1947. She received her MFA from Brooklyn College of CUNY in 1996 and Bachelor of Science in Design at the University of Cincinnati, College of DAAP in 1970.
She was an Assistant Professor of Painting and Drawing at Bowdoin College in Brunswick, Maine from 1997 to 1999. Bowdoin commissioned her to paint a portrait of Joshua Chamberlain, Maine’s Civil War hero, Governor of Maine and President of Bowdoin College, for the 2000 campus dedication of the Chamberlain Residence Hall.
While living in Italy, 1999-2003, partially funded by grants from the Guggenheim and Pollock Krasner Foundations, she traveled in Europe and studied the works of master painters Titian, Raphael, Corot and Velasquez.
Following her European travels, she returned to Maine where she paints from her studio. She states that she is “recognized as a professional painter whose imaginative use of color has drawn collectors internationally to collect her figurative, still life and Maine coast harbor paintings.”
In his September 20, 2020 art review in the Portland Press Herald, Jorge Arango described her work as:
"Impressionistic, drenched in soft pastel hues, with outlines of trees, objects and buildings often blurred, they are thoroughly pleasing and visually undemanding. . . . .these works reveal a serious painter with an assured and skillful technique that sets Ingraham apart from many artists who engage in similar subject matter.
