Tina Norén - Wanderlust

Tina Norén - Wanderlust

Wanderlust, giving ourselves permission to do more than one thing and the inspiring non-fiction books that are holding our interest these days are just a few topics we chat about as we go down the beautiful meandering path of Tina Norén. Tina is an artist and designer, 2nd generation Filipino-American and mother to three school-aged children. Tina has designed and painted several murals, including 3 at elementary schools, as well as the mural in the Art Park at the Santa Paula Art Museum, where she also works part-time. Her art is bold and colorful and is often filled with meditative and therapeutic repetitive lines.


1. Consider saying no without giving an excuse or a reason.

2. Embrace the fact that your creative practice is helping you be a better parent and partner. 

3. If you often have kids or family barging in on you while you’re creating, try to find work that allows you to be interrupted.

4. Don’t say you don’t have enough time to do something just acknowledge that you haven’t prioritized it yet.
