Tanya Mance

Tanya has been drawing since a young child and recently graduated to dabbling with digital art using Procreate to illustrate children's books. She has had art showings of her acrylic paintings in Atlanta, GA, Pittsburgh, PA, and Chicago, IL. Her personalized artwork has been showcased internationally in Malaysia and the UK. She holds a Master of Arts in Counseling with a specialization in Art Therapy. She is a mother of 2, a practicing Art Therapist, and freelance artist.

Tanya believes that being a visual artist means being able to make simple shapes and lines and help them evolve into another form . Art is how you chose to manipulate those lines and shapes. And everyone has an artist within them. Many people chose to stick with one medium and master that, she enjoys the challenge of experimenting with various media. Her love of colors translates to vibrant and whimsical artwork. Illustrating helps her deal with living life and maneuver through all of its complexities.
