About the Artist
Tina Orsolic Dalessio (b.1982, Croatia) is a figurative painter born in Zagreb, Croatia. She received her formal academic training at the prestigious Florence Academy of Art in Italy, during which she was granted a meritorious scholarship. She graduated from the Academy in 2018. Before becoming a painter, she taught philosophy of law at the University of Zagreb. As a classically trained artist who specializes in painting from life, Tina's objective is to paint ‘slice-of-life’ scenes, thereby absorbing and articulating the beauty of the world around her as authentically as possible. Tina's subject matter ranges from portraits and still lives to landscapes. She takes particular joy working en plein air, exposed to the elements and immersed in nature. Tina lives and works in Estremoz, Portugal.
