Tina St John was born and raised in the Ottawa valley.
She began her journey in art and music therapy, creatively healing from a lifelong eating disorder.
She describes herself as an intuitive artist. Her paintings take her to landscapes, pathways from within, where she creates spaces to heal, connecting in spirit and body, flowing along, in the many symbolic meanings of rivers: the hero’s journey; a path that one must take; the descent into or out of something; birth and rebirth.
Tina, a retired midwife, mother of four, and grandmother of four lives in Vanier with her husband, daughter, her dogs and Bowie, her green cheek parrot.
