About the Artist

A self taught artist, Dina enjoys working in a wide variety of art media, specializing in colored pencil and watercolor. Her commissioned portraits can be found in private collections across the US, as well as in Canada, Germany and the UK. She has also worked for over 17 years as a brand ambassador, licensed artist and educator in the paper crafts industry. Her rubber stamp designs are purchased by crafters worldwide through Impression Obsession. She is the Artist in Residence at Splitcoaststampers.com, curating and creating craft tutorials and co-editing a weekly newsletter that reaches over 170,000 readers. Her personal blog is a resource for creative inspiration as well as product reviews for the discerning crafter.

Dina works from home in rural mid-Missouri, where she lives with her husband, their 4 teenage children, and a hyper but loyal mastiff mix. Her online store features items with her artwork (prints, notecards, pendants) as well as jewelry designs. She teaches colored pencil workshops regularly in Sedalia and recently founded a Facebook group to promote the arts in Benton County.

When she's not working on a creative project, you might find her in the kitchen, at the piano, or tending her geraniums. The music is definitely playing (anything from Bing Crosby to Elton John) and probably loud.
