I sell almost all of my work at my "Ebay Store":http://www.ebay.com.au/usr/tahnjaoriginalart
Formerly a professional and successful singer/songwriter/musician and after touring, performing and recording a CD in America from 2001-2004 returned home to Australia and began to pursue an art career.

Born in Hamburg, Germany. Moved to Australia with my parents when a young child.

I currently reside on the Southern NSW coast of Australia.

Studied art with world renowned artist Howard David Johnson in 2006-2008. Was mentored privately by a former University Art Teacher.

I work primarily with acrylics, oils and impasto medium.

Primarily influenced by the work of the old impressionist and pre-raphaelite masters. My artwork is predominantly spiritual/religious for which I am most known and commissioned for. My personal faith is extremely deep and I pour that great love and faith into each and every painting.

Horses are also a great passion of mine and in my depictions of them, I focus on their personality, form, power and movement.

The eyes of all my subjects are where I excel, bringing the light and life to shine within them which draws the viewer in and makes a connection with the subject.

I strive for one important element in my work…to evoke emotion in the viewer. I focus on compositions that evoke an emotive response with which to draw in the viewer.

“My Favourite Quote”
“The opposite of love is not hate, it’s indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it’s indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it’s indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it’s indifference. – Elie Wiesel

“Indifference, to me, may as well mean a hardened heart. A hardened heart is one without love…and one without love is dead to life…." — Tahnja
