An interview with Inka Member Tina Burman
You have been with Inka for nearly two years now. What made you choose to become a member of Inka Gallery?
I was looking for a gallery with a relaxed atmosphere, a place where I can sell my unframed work and so that the customers can buy original art at an affordable price.
How long have you been creating art and how did you get started?
|Standing Tall - Lithography|
I started with an Adult Ed class in 2000 and it developed from there.
What or who inspires your artwork?
|Star Gazer - etching|
A printmaking course at Tafe inspired me and that’s where I got to learn about Jorg Schimeisser and Barbara Hanrahan’s work and loved what they did.
Do you have a favourite subject and medium?
My favourite is printmaking in particular linocuts
Besides printmaking I also like oil painting, pastels and making clam shell boxes.
Being a member of Inka has be a great learning curve for me on how agallery is run. And a great way to meet people and make new friends.
