Tanya grew up on the Central Coast of New South Wales, where she developed a great love and appreciation of nature and the environment.

Developing an artistic style based on a keen understanding of nature, her work is characterised by high detail and a devotion to capturing the true spirit of the subject. Working from her studio in Jilliby, NSW, Tanya is constantly inspired by her natural surroundings.

Finding that she was constantly drawn to works portraying extreme detail and depicting subjects of flora and fauna Tanya has decided to combine these two aspects in her work as a Natural History Illustrator. Research of her chosen subject plays an important role in Tanya’s work and allows her to achieve an accurate likeness throughout her paintings.

Tanya holds a Bachelor of Natural History Illustration degree (Honours) from the University of Newcastle.

Tanya’s work can be seen in local galleries and throughout various exhibitions nationwide. Her paintings can be found in private collections throughout Australia and overseas. Tanya is an invited member of the Florilegium Society at the Royal Botanic Gardens in Sydney and regularly exhibits in Botanica.
