Tina Hull
Graduated 1979

I came to ECU in 1975 with several NC Scholastic Art Gold Key awards in art and a Blue Ribbon award in Photography. I majored in Textile Design and my minor was Printmaking. After graduating with a BFA I headed to New York city and courses at the Fashion Institute of Technology. I lived at the Barbizon Hotel for Women and worked for a major textile firm in the woven design department.

I left NYC for Allentown, Pennsylvania and was employed in banking and insurance for a decade. I took some printmaking classes at the Baum School of Art in Allentown. I continued taking pictures and doing works in ceramics, weaving and painting.

Moving back to NC in the early 90’s I found work in the promotional products industry. This was a position that finally let me use daily what I learned at ECU involving weaving, fabrics, screen printing, ceramics, etching and metal working. Understanding the processes involved helped me work with customers to create products to promote their companies.

Twenty-twenty and the pandemic left me unemployed and deciding to retire. I have more time to paint, take pictures, sew, garden and do art projects with my granddaughter.
