I have lived in the Bay Area since 1996. I work in a variety of mediums though at the moment mostly gouache and acrylic paints. I studied journalism and art at San Diego State University.
In 1988, I created a line of "fish" magnets and initial orders from Pottery Barn and Nordstrom launched my small company. Over the next few years (and with the help of reps) my colorful magnets were available all over the country.
Having the business was exhausting, but very rewarding....Post from : http://www.tinacuccia.com/blog/index.php
