Tanya Dann describes herself as a multi-media artist, working with a variety of different media and disciplines. In particular Drawing, Painting and Textiles; she has also dabbled in Ceramics, Digital Art, Jewellery, Photography, Printmaking and Sculpture.

Her recent works can be divided into 3 main categories:

Paintings: Bright, bold, acrylic abstracts are Tanya’s signature pieces, designed to brighten any space and make a real statement.

Photographs: Landscapes and nature inspired photography showing off the very best that New Zealand has to offer.

Portraits: Graphite portraits of people or animals from photographs. These make great gifts for the person who has everything.

Tanya has a varied background in art, clothing and textiles, forensics, horticulture, hospitality/tourism and zoology. She completed a Certificate in Creative Studies in 2007, and attended Art School in Dunedin in 2008 before returning to her scientific root, gaining multiple postgraduate qualifications in forensic textiles (2011) and entomology (2018). Now she’s given that all up for the quiet life, having recently moved to the tiny township of Oban on Stewart Island, New Zealand.
