About Tina

I have been creating since I can remember with crayons and cross stitch being my first creative adventures. 

As life happens I started a career and left creativity on the sidelines until I had my first child. 

It was then~22 years ago that I was introduced to scrapbooking and it was as if the lights came back on!  

I could not get enough of the papers, the punches, the embellishments, oh my!

It was onward and forward.  

My career path took a turn and I started something I truly loved ~ working with a creative team of individuals for one of North America’s leading craft retailers, teaching and creating artful workshops.

It’s been over 10 years and I know that I will never put down the paint brush again.

Tina Hois ARt is my little corner in the art world, a place that makes me happy~ where I learn, create and inspire.
