Tonya Henderson is a Visionary Artist, who creates acrylic paintings that reflect the flow, or movement of energy, universal landscapes, visions, and dreams. Each piece contains a fluidity of movement, which integrates circles, spirals, and swirls of color into landscapes or places of the mind.
Tonya creates what she calls Personal Energy Portraits which are psychic readings of your personal energy. They capture the imagery of the visions she sees while reading your energy. These readings give insight into your personality, personal obstacles, and challenges while directing you to your path of least resistance, helping you along your spiritual journey.
She works with watercolors as well, which permit her to delicately describe nature. Tonya enjoys working outdoors and directly from nature, noticing the play of colors and accurately describing her subject matter. She often uses watercolors for illustration and will be releasing illustrated ebooks later this year.
Tonya Henderson received training from the Flint Institute of Art in Flint MI, The Dubner Training School in Hackensack NJ, and The Colorado Institute of Art, in Denver CO, where she obtained a degree in Visual Communications.
She began her career as a Graphic Designer at WJRT-TV12 in Flint and worked for advertising agencies and design firms in Michigan, Colorado & Virginia. Tonya created set designs, show open/closes, corporate logos, art for documentaries, murals, billboard designs, newspapers, brochures, etc.
Later, Tonya began to focus on painting, creating works in watercolor, acrylic, and mixed media. She has exhibited her work across the U.S.A.. and currently resides in MI. Tonya is the owner of Creative Spirit Studios and the Painting Poet, and is an instructor at the Flint Institute of Art in acrylic painting courses.
