Tina studied at California Institute of the Arts and continued on to have a successful career in fashion. She created several high-profile partnerships including Apple, Bloomingdales, Vans and Urban Outfitters. Her design work took her to Ghana, West Africa, where she fell in love with the people, culture and art.  Her connection to Ghana and West Africa is a driving force behind her consulting.

She founded So Much Art with goal to amplify the voices of black artists, women artists and the underrepresented in the "traditional" art space.
