Thank you for visiting my page. I hope my work brought a smile
to your wonderful face. Now that you have seen my work you might
be wondering, 'Who is this Tanya person?'
Well, I am an artist that lives and works in Austin, Texas.
I grew up in the hill country in a small town called Wimberley. It is a great place to visit and I suggest a road trip out there to everyone.
I attended Prairie View A&M University and graduated with a B.S. in Architecture.
However, I am not an architect. My path took a slight turn and I ended up working in a more Social Work kind of vibe. At this time I am working for the state of Texas at the state abuse hotline, but Art is my first love. I take my sketchbook everywhere and am constantly creating.
I primarily work with polymer clay. I love making little ducks and animals in a steampunk style. I have made owls, whales, bears, pigs and more in this style. I also have a fondness for customizing vinyl blanks.(Click here to learn more about what they are.)
I dabble a bit with jewelry but when that and the clay make my hands sore I switch to drawing and painting. I really like working with watercolor and prefer to paint on Ampersand Aquabords.
