Tigress Tile is Andrea Christie and Lisa Choinacky
Christie and Choinacky's path began in South Bend, Indiana. They found themselves in art classes together and spent most of their high school Saturdays at the local art center where they took classes and worked. Their materials and areas of interest diverged as they cultivated their respective creative skills. Christie earned her BFA from Indiana University and MFA from Tulane University, while Choinacky earned her BFA from Ball State University and MFA from Ohio University. They reconnected in Austin, TX, where they meld their clay and paint studio practices to create custom painted handcrafted earthenware tiles.
