Tina de Freitas

Artist / Sculptor / Painter / Panist

Tina obtained her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the Ontario College of Art and Design. She formed her sole proprietorship, Tina's Touch, on June 21, 2007. Tina's Touch produces artwork, including portraits, photography, and woodwork. She expanded into creating and designing steel pan sticks, souvenirs and other accessories.

The idea for Cool Stixx came to Tina as a natural evolution. She and her family are accomplished panists. She recognized that there was a limitation in the production of custom-designed steel pan sticks. Being an artist, Tina spotted the opportunity to bring some creativity and uniqueness to the designs of the steel pan sticks. Her visual and musical artistic talents complement the goal of her business.
