THE ARTIST IN NATURE ...climbing alongside an old growth cedar, then nestling deep into its gnarled embrace. Above, moss drips from tree limbs, below springs bubble from the earth. Here the artist begins her work, observing nature and carefully documenting her intricacies.
Tanya will return to her studio, augmenting observation with anthropological research, In her ethereal paintings, mystical images and legends dance with reality. “ I love that moment in time when we were still connected to nature....when a culture still reveres nature as something magical.” Lori Varosh Interview, 2006
