Hi, my name is Tina Hotchkiss. I was raised in central Ohio on a horse farm. I
received a Bachelor’s degree in Arts and Sciences from The Ohio State University. I
worked as a commercial and residential designer for 15 years and had the pleasure of
working with designers who showed excellent drawing skills.
During those 15 years I fell in love with the drawing and rendering processes of design.
Wanting to share the skills I learned, I decided to teach drawing to people with the
mutual love for the arts. I enjoyed this new adventure so much, I expanded my skills to
watercolor, color pencils, and pastels. My goal is to experience more forms of art and
expand my horizons and at the same time, share these skills with others.
I’m currently an art instructor at multiple locations. In addition, I am teaching private
and semiprivate classes in my home and online. I’m also a member of the Ann Arbor
Women Artists, Colored Pencil Society of America (and the Detroit chapter), and
National Watercolor Society (and Michigan chapter). I have participated in many juried
and non-juried shows sponsored by these organizations. I can be reached by email at
firstname.lastname@example.org or call/text 734-678-9049.
