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!
||Phoenix Rising III
I was drawn to paint the Phoenix Rising theme because of the strength and majesty of these mythical creatures. They are said to be kind and loyal, attributes that for me are the foundation of a happy life and which contribute well towards a successful collector/ artist relationship. There are now six paintings in this series, with four of them sold already, two to the US and two to the UK.
The painting's pattern continues around all edges of the canvas and as this canvas is quite deep, the painting looks wonderful hanging up unframed.
