My artwork explores pop culture, bold colors, and afro-centric themes.  My art is fun and often described as unique.  My motto is ART IS TRYing.  I encourage all to create their own masterpiece.

Born in Baltimore but raised in Pittsburgh, Tiara Dinkins has always had a passion for art. From a young age, Tiara enjoyed pairing colors that normally would not be paired. She did not shy away from bright chartreuse colors. If it was not for her elementary school art teacher, her love for the arts would not have been known.

Tiara graduated from Pittsburgh’s Creative and Performing Arts High School in 2006 majoring in Visual Arts. There she studied all forms of art but what sparked her interest was painting. Painting, in particular abstract, was her calling. Currently, she shifted her attention to oil pastels.

Art Deco is Tiara’s favorite art form and one of the greatest Art Deco artists, Tamara de Lempicka is her influence. Like de Lempicka, Tiara uses geometric shapes and vivid colors to make her paintings different and unique.

This new emerging artist wants all to be able to enjoy her work just as much as she enjoys creating it!
