I have lived in Southern California my whole life and went to the Fashion Institute of Design in LA with every intention of doing something in that realm. Life took me on a different course and I stayed home with my 3 babies. To make extra money I started decorative painting seasonal characters on wood to sell at craft shows. Which led me to designing decorative painting pattern books, I also wrote crafting DIY project articles for a few magazines. It was a great creative outlet and I could stay at home with my kids. As times change so did I and I branched out from decorative painted seasonal characters to just about everything else. I have a website TinaLedbetterDesigns.com that I have filled with a lot of my favorite images. My site also show cases a few companies that I have had the pleasure to design for. Creating designs that bring a smile.
