  1. I would like to submit to you a picture of one of Tino’s sculptures. I met him in 1987 when he lived on Whidbey Island in the town of Oak Harbor, WA.
    He taught me how to make molds for cold casting with resins. I moved away from Oak Harbor in 1990. When I came back to Oak Harbor for a visit in ’94 he and his lady friend were living in a retirement home and he was then in a wheelchair and had alzhiemers. 1995 I moved back to Oak Harbor I found out he had passed away. I knew him as a wonderful teacher of art and design. We spent hours together and he would show me his porcelain cups and various resin reproductions and molds and their complexities. I have one of his bird paintings and 3 sculptures. I wish I had more. Also his mission statement detailing his thoughts on art and its meanings to man.
