Inspired by magical creatures and flora, old literature, and storytelling.
Tina Givens began sewing and creating at a young age, and often draws inspiration from her elements of her childhood memories. Born in southern Africa, Tina’s childhood was lived, in her words, “within a colonial culture of English tea and toast points.” She and her family later moved to Canada where she met her husband, Kevin. The couple now makes their home in Cleveland, Ohio with three beautiful children — including a set of twins!
Tina loves to create and embraces a variety of media with joy and enthusiasm. We think she does well at communicating that delight and originality
