Tina Maria InspiredLensArt
Creation, peace, and joy are the vibes that move from my heart and through the lens. The gift to create I believe was given specifically for my inner peace. My joy comes when that vibe becomes tangible and enjoyed by others. Hi, I am Tina Maria Givons Hollis, born Tina Maria Givons in Washington, DC, I grew up in a close family who celebrated lots of holidays together; during which time someone was always taking pictures. I remember so well being fascinated by the slides my aunt created while we were all just being around and having fun. Ater awhile she gathered us all around the projector as we watched ourselves in awe that we were captured in the moment doing this and that. In my later years, I would always take pictures, develop, look at them and stack them away or put in an album. I never gave it a second thought. During my first semester in college, I took a few pictures and printed them in a larger format, and put them away. As life went on I would comment that I want to create my own art to hang on the wall. Believe it or not, photography did not occur to me. I could not draw or paint, but I knew I wanted to create something. I am a firm believer we get what we want and need in our do season. I was introduced to photography and fell in love. As I began to learn the techniques and later discover a passion to create, my journey changed direction.
