Tina Newberry

Last week I had lunch at the Columbus Museum of Art with visiting artist and painter Tina Newberry. She teaches at Indiana University and is quite enthralled with all things Civil War. We talked grad programs and her advice was to take a year or two off after CCAD (thank goodness!) before considering going back to school. No hurry. She also gets a kick out of decapitated barbies, swimming, hates pantyhose, and has an overall wicked sense of humor.
From The Philadelphia Enquirer:
"Tina Newberry's painting is autobiographical, but it looks
inward. She's a traditional figure painter who casts herself pictorially in a
variety of roles... These include being a professional golfer, a competent
musician, and a goat herder."
