- Tina Stiles-Bryant “Art is not about the tools used to create it,” Tina begins… “it is about the vision, message, and emotion the artist is trying to convey.” Digital art is much like any other artform, it’s just created using different tools than traditional art. Tina’s secret to success lies not only in her vision and interpretation, but in her mastery of the complex software and processes involved in creating effective, aesthetically pleasing digital artwork.
