Tanya has been painting for over 20 years and has work hanging in many countries.
She has had her work in several galleries and currently sells her work from her home studio.
Her younger son, Elijah Black is home schooled and works alongside her in the studio and has sold many of his own pieces and has also exhibited in Melbourne and at the Royal Women's Hospital in Brisbane.
Tanya;s styles range from an impressionist style in her earlier work, to a looser 'Toulouse Lautrec' style oil and pastel pieces.
Tanya works in several mediums including, oils, acrylics, resins, pastels, ink, collage and sculpture and also has a keen focus on textiles – working with different printing techniques and also spinning, knitting and crocheting custom art yarns from fleece bought from local farms.
She has experimented with different techniques over the years and whilst still enjoying portraiture, is currently exploring more abstract concepts and the freedom and flow that evolves from the process.
