The art that I create is inspired by what I see and an accumulation of my experiences, ideas, interests and the things I find humorous or intriguing. I am inspired by the life and style in California, pop culture, fashion, architecture and eclectic, off-beat prose and biblical numerology and gematria. My early roots in advertising and being a founder of an outdoor advertising company have led me to love and lean toward creating either abstract , mixed media pieces or “statement” art that combines words, numbers, images and bold color.
My “real” name is Tina Kleinjan Setzer, my artist "pseudonym" is Tina Who. I’m a SoCal Native, a Cancer with my moon in Leo, an extroverted introvert. I live in Marin County and have lived in the Bay Area for 18 years. I have 3, school aged children. When I'm not painting, I enjoy parody song writing, studying esoteric subjects, being on the water and escaping to warm places whenever I can.
