TRISTINA DIETZ ELMES

Paintings

“Bold color and dynamic movement are my favorite effects.”

Originally from New Haven, Connecticut, Tristina Dietz Elmes grew up in the 1960’s and 70’s in Asia. There she developed a love of ink on rice paper painting in Korea, and studied Chinese language and character painting in Taiwan. After attending college in Maryland, Tristina settled in Florida where she enjoyed a successful career in Computer Systems design and instruction with clients such as National Geographic Society, Sony Music, and Microsoft before embarking on her artistic career. Now an award-winning mixed media abstract artist, teacher, and author based in Fort Lauderdale, Tristina’s passion for life and innovative painting style results in fresh, energetic art. “I love to play with a sense of letting go, allowing the paint to take on a life of its own as my creative partner. Exploring with acrylic, resin, and liquid oil paints on fine paper, wood panel and canvas, I delight in creating eye-catching contemporary works of art for discerning collectors.”
