Tina Holley selected as Artist in Residence in the Petrified Forest National Park, Arizona
Tina spent October, 2016 in the Petrified Forest National Park in Arizona as Artist in Residence. Whilst staying in the Park Tina spent her time exploring hidden areas of the park to paint, as well as demonstrating to visitors and co-hosting a performance event and an exhibition of work from the 2015 Artist in Residence programme.
The Park is in eastern Arizona on the old Route 66 and includes part of the Painted Desert. It is a remarkable landscape of fallen trees from 230 million years ago which have been fossilised and mineralised into exquisite shapes and colours whilst still being recognisable as the living trees they once were. This is an area Tina has visited before and is one of her favourite landscapes.
As so much of Tina's work comes from years of living in and being associated with Snowdonia National Park she enjoys showing her watercolour paintings of such contrasting landscapes in other parts of the world.
