Tina Linville received her BFA from the University of Washington and her MFA from California State University, Long Beach. She has shown her sculptures, installations and collaborative projects regionally and internationally including exhibitions at 18th Street Art Center, Torrance Art Museum and Mains D'Oeuves in Paris, France. She lives and works in Long Beach, California.

Mundane materials are transformed into mysterious objects, through Tina Linville's use of the basic human compulsions of collecting, arranging, and wrapping. Her hybrid works blur distinctions between painting and sculpture through thoroughly layered, tactile surfaces.
