Tanja is a German-born, London based painter who creates bright and colourful acrylic "Mosaic Paintings" that sing with happiness and aim to bring joy into people's lives and brighten up their homes.
"Mosaic Paintings" are carefully hand painted using multiple layers of high-quality acrylic paint to create vibrant and intense results. Each painting takes upwards of three days to create with larger pieces easily taking a couple of weeks.
Tanja studied classical drawing at the London Atelier of Representational Art and has been mentored on how to be a professional artist by famous painter Rosa Branson MBE. She has also copied Old Master paintings in the National Gallery, London and the Kunstpalast, Germany.
More then 34 Mosaic Paintings and 27 hand painted mosaic diaries have sold to eight countries around the world, including Brazil, China, India, Norway, Germany, Hungary and the US, where they are held in mostly private collections. Tanja was also commissioned to paint two large-scale mosaic murals in London and has taught mosaic painting in the United States.
Tanja has exhibited in solo and group
exhibitions around London, including at the Mall Galleries and with the British
Red Cross. Her motto is: Live Your Life In Colour!
Mr Teddy was created from a drawing of a stuffed teddy bear that I bought in a charity shop some years ago because it reminded me of my mother and her teddy figurine collection. The teddy sits in my studio and makes me feel close to my mother and family who are all back in Germany. Mr Teddy was one of five designs to be printed on cushions in June 2018 as part of the Wraptious Cushion Competition. It was the most sold cushion out of my five designs with the first one being snapped up just half an hour after my designs were uploaded to the website. Very fittingly, my mother got one, too.
This piece is painted on durable paper. It can be bought unframed or be framed by me in a special format I designed for my paper paintings.
