Tina Hariu

Born in Madison, Wisconsin

Lives & works in San Francisco Bay Area, CA



I am a freelance artist and geologist living in the beautiful waterfront town of Benicia, California. I moved here in late 2020 from Marin County, California. In addition to my art, I am a geologist in the environmental industry.

I specialize in portraits (via painting and sculpture) and murals, and do much of my work on commission. If you like a painting you see in my portfolio that is not for sale, I can produce a similar painting for you.

I work closely with my clients to ensure I am fully encompassing your concept (with a little added help, if you want it!).

I hope you enjoy my work, and please contact me for pricing of your custom heirloom art piece.

Best regards,

Tina Hariu
