Tanya’s Work

Tanya’s Artist Statement:

My work takes a critical and sometimes humorous view of social and cultural constructs, particularly where girls and women are concerned, by magnifying, questioning, and often disrupting the power dynamics in relationships. I like to think I represent those whose voices have been quieted, those with no immediate exit strategy, and those who find beauty among the damaged clutter and in the marks we leave on one another’s hearts. 

Tanya has studied and practiced a variety of writing disciplines, but most enjoys writing fiction and scripts.
