Guest Bio:

Tina is the Founder and CEO of Dream Free Art. She is passionate about sharing the benefits of open-ended, stress-relieving, process-centered art with the community. Tina first found her love of art and entrepreneurship at an early age. Most children open a lemonade stand or mow lawns; meanwhile, young, free-spirited Tina opened a nail salon on her friend’s porch at the age of 12. Since then, Tina has prioritized incorporating art and creative expression in everything she does. As a wife, mom of 7 children (and a new puppy, too!), and a former early childhood educator, Tina values and truly embraces art and using art as a stress-relieving experience and enjoys sharing that with the world!
