Tina and Sig were blessed with three daughters. In between taking the girls to piano and ballet lessons she also carved out a career for herself as a very accomplished artist. She worked in watercolor and oils and showed her work at the Corcoran Gallery of Art. Tina received an Audubon Society award for her paintings of nature in the Washington, DC area.
