 About Me

Picture 698

Dina’s colorful, expressive style is anchored by her design hallmark, the creative use of white space. Her personal, organic design aesthetic strikes a balance between “artsy” and “classic”.

Dina is a mixed-media artist and teacher. She loves everything about art: creating it, thinking about it, looking at it, and teaching it. She has been scrapbooking since 1995, stamping since 1996, and art journaling since 2004. She believes in writing yourself down, expressing yourself, and making your mark on the world. As a Ranger Signature Designer, Dina designs a line of mixed-media art supplies that includes acrylic paints, mediums, brushes, rubber stamps, stencils, and more.

Dina lives in Arizona with her husband and 3 boys (affectionately termed “the fellas”). With a love of teaching and traveling, Dina travels the world to teach and share her art passion with students on every continent.

Dina’s two books Art Journal Freedom and Art Journal Courage are available now. You can also buy DVDs and digital downloads here: Click Here to Go to the North Light Shop.

How Do I Find Out About Your Teaching Schedule and New Online Classes?

I post regularly on social media. Find me on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. I also keep my teaching schedule current here. Also check my blog regularly for announcements and updates.


Will You Come and Teach at My Store/Event?

Yes! I love to teach. Just email me (dina@dinawakley.com) and we can work out contract, details, etc. Note: the most common reason I don’t get your email is you misspell my last name.
