Tanya is an Artist with SouthAfricanArtists.com based in South Africa.
Tanya was born (18/12/1964) and grew up in Cape Town, and attended Wynberg Girls’ High School. She studied at Stellenbosch and obtained a BA in Fine Arts/Graphics from the University of Stellenbosch in 1987.
Tanya specializes in gouche, a water-based paint and acrylic. Her work has been sold to both South African and overseas art buyers.
Tanya did illustration work for Cosmopolitan and Fair Lady magazines. She also worked for Leisure Hour doing layout work, illustrations as well as photography.
Tanya and her husand Louis and 3 children Bianca, Kara and Dylan lived in Montagu in the Klein Karoo from 1990 to 1996. This is where I started her personalized paintings after being commissioned by Sylvia Krige wife of South African artist Francois Krige to do a painting for her nephew, a film producer, living in New York, USA.
Marlow Walters of the Tuscany Gallery in Montagu exhibited and sold her paintings while she was living in Montagu.
She had an exhibition in Franschoek at the Art de Vivre Gallery and the gallery owner, Marina Todd, had this to say about Tanya’s paintings:
‘Her unique style flows out of traditional African folklore themes. Joyful, exuberant and dreamlike, the detailed images that fill her landscapes and portraits bring to mind the fuitful, abundant land in the midst of change that is the inspiring, modern renaissance of South Africa.’
Tanya has a passion for the use of colour and textures and brings a touch of humour into her paintings with the unexpected.
