Tink was born in Tinley Park, Illinois and raised in the suburbs of Houston, Texas. The arts has always been a huge influence in her life. Since she was a baby, she was always plugging herself into a new realm of creativity, starting with music and dance then soon after diving into performing and visual arts. She was very much inspired in the arts by her late Father who was a photographer, videographer, and artist. From a young age, she always sat on her dad's lap behind the lens of a camera learning all that she could. Throughout her adolescent life she continued to grow more and more in love with photography and videography - studying it throughout high school and gaining as much experience as possible.
In 2006, Tink moved to Nashville, Tennessee and studied photography at Nashville State and Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU), then continued studying by gaining experience by interning with several professional photographers as well as being a freelance photographer/videographer. Her passion has always been to capture the essence of life from behind the lens. Tink is currently based in Melbourne, VIC Australia with her loving husband Sam.
