About Tina Schmidt


Tina Schmidt's artistic background extends over four decades as a professional artist.  She has a BFA in Entertainment Arts and a long career in commercial art.  She retired from film and animation as the lead artist and supervisor (working in the entertainment industry for companies such as Disney, Nickelodeon, Klasky Csupo, Lorimar Studios, Ronald McDonald video Productions, and others).  She is an active member of the Southern California Plein Air Painters’ Association, the National Watercolor Society, and the Anaheim Arts Association in Anaheim, CA, along with several other art affiliations.  She was a respected instructor for 15 years at Cal State University Fullerton where she taught perspective design development as it relates to environmental design for the entertainment industry, and animal drawing and dynamic anatomy motion studies.  Tina’s work expanded into eight California galleries working in acrylics as a pop-culture artist painting the genre and architecture of the 1960s midcentury modernism with limited edition giclees and gallery originals.  Today, her expanded medium includes watercolors that range from landscapes to seascapes, animal paintings and people portraits, and Christian topics.  Check out free introduction watercolor lessons on YouTube or enroll in classes and workshops.
