Tina Ingraham is a contemporary Maine realist painter who paints oil portrait commissions in the tradition of the Masters. She works from life while referencing painted studies and drawings to best capture the individual's likeness. Ms. Ingraham's naturalistic portraits may be commissioned directly through her studio by scheduling an initial consultation. She is known for her brilliant use of color and adherence to using the highest quality archival materials in all aspects of her work. She has received grants from the John Simon Guggenheim Foundation and Pollock Krasner Foundation for her painting and research in Italy from 1999 to 2002. The experience continues to inform her traditionally-inspired work and research of Master Paintings. Currently exhibiting at Somerville Manning Gallery in Greenville, DE, is a group of poetic still life paintings. Exhibiting at Boston Art, Inc is "Rhythm and Light at Portland Pier" a lush, light-filled depiction of the Harbor Fish Market at Portland Maine's working waterfront.
