bio

tina scott lassiter is a collage artist, photographer, and author/writer whose works range from abstract to realism. She has an eclectic eye when it comes to photographic subjects; her intricately designed collages primarily focus on either the female body (goddesses) or head (oracles), and are influenced by issues that affect women, girls and transgender females. A commission from the Capitol Breast Care Center inspired the creation of a collaged goddess that came to represent the strength, courage and resilience of women. Both the collage and photo images have been published in Spirituality & Health and Body & Soul Connection magazines where she was also a featured artist and have been selected by several not-for-profits to use in program marketing. Tina has exhibited at numerous locations in and around the District as well as traveled with her art to facilitate workshops that use her pieces as the catalyst for conversation and self reflection. Her first book, "morsels of peeps...mindful musings, inspirational thoughts, quiet images" includes a selection of her black and white photographs; she has compiled a book of the goddess collages that tell her story about body issues and self esteem.

Ms. Lassiter serves on both grant related and judging panels for various arts organizations; was Art Editor/Columnist for NEWORLD Renaissance, an aspiring New York-based multicultural magazine of the arts; and sourced then visited galleries/artists around the country to select art for Black Enterprise Magazine. Homes of Color magazine featured her living space in an eight page spread on decorating a small space. Follow her on Instagram @myeclecticeye and on Pinterest @my_eclecticeye.
