Art has always been a passion and relaxation for Tina Carey. Her working background was advertising and textiles doing design and colour ranges in her early years.
After many years travelling and being in the travel industry, Tina and her husband moved from Auckland to Pauanui.
Her long forgotten artistic urges were reborn in these wonderful surroundings. Tina paints with the Hikuai Art Group regularly. Working at The Little Gallery on a voluntary basis has advanced her work and confidence.
