Tina Lake

Former Art Professor and accomplished artist, Tina Selanders Lake, age 68, died on Monday February 7, 2022, in Russellville, Arkansas. She leaves behind her husband of fifty years, Paul Saunders Lake III, two children Rachel Lake and Alexander Lake, a grandson, Richard Garrett Berry II, and three sisters Sherry Selanders Farebrother of California, Dawn Selanders Wall of California, and Diane Selanders Tutt of California. She was born on September 12, 1953, in London, England to parents Leslie Martin Selanders and Doris Kirk.  Tina received her undergraduate degree in 1977 from Towson State University and her master’s in fine arts from San Francisco Art Institute in 1980, where she studied Drawing and Printmaking. Tina taught as an Adjunct Instructor at Arkansas Tech University and as a Fine Arts Instructor at the University of the Ozarks. She then retired from her position as a Fine Arts Instructor at University of Arkansas Community College at Morrilton after teaching there for many years. Tina was an incredibly talented artist who showed and sold her works in multiple Art Exhibits most recently in the MSW 51st Annual Juried Exhibition in March 2021.  She was a member of the Pittsburgh Watercolor Society and the Mid-Southern Watercolorists. She worked at the Frick Art and Historical Center during the time she lived in Pittsburgh, PA with her husband and son. She was active with the church and had a strong faith in God, even going on a missionary trip to Mexico City, Mexico in 2012 to help build houses for the under-privileged. She was passionate about her family, especially her grandson, teaching art, and traveling with her students on EF Educational Tours throughout Europe to experience its art history. Her artworks are a living tribute to her that will be enjoyed and cherished forever.

A memorial service to celebrate Tina’s life will be held at the Russellville Family Funeral on March 19th, 2022, at 3pm.

I am sorry to hear of Tina's death--and now Paul's. I had the wonderful opportunity to work with Tina at the University of Arkansas Community College in Morrilton several years ago. Not only was she a very talented artist, but she also had such a passion for art that she shared with her students and our campus community. My thoughts are with her and Paul's family.
