Who is Arbor Night?
A little information about
the artist known as...
Tania is a native of Geneva, Ohio. She began painting at age 11 and is primarily self-taught – aside from some formal lessons as a teen. Her primary mediums include oil, open acrylics, clay, and ink. She draws inspiration from life around her and views the world in colors and textures. The PNW provides the perfect setting. She finds professional inspiration in the works of Ralph Bakshi, Mark Ryden, Bob Ross, Margaret D. H. Keane, and Marion Peck, among others.
Having lived all over the United States, Tania has shown and curated in both Nashville and Clarksville, Tennessee; sold pieces privately in North Carolina, Oklahoma, and Washington; and participated in the bi-annual Olympia Arts Walk since 2016. As a mixed-media artist who loves to create, she has painted covers for a sci-fi magazine and designed artistic fan merchandise for multiple solo musicians and bands. Currently, she divides her time between sculpting polymer clay art pieces and jewelry; creating ocean-themed pieces using repurposed bottles, polymer clay, and locally sourced gemstones and crystals; making artisan soaps; and of course, painting.
Tania resides in a historic home in downtown Shelton with her husband and two of their four children. When they moved to Washington in 2016, they knew they finally found the place to plant roots. Washington has offered endless inspiration and helped Tania grow as an artist. She looks forward to every experience, learning opportunity, and plein air painting adventure this beautiful corner of America has to offer.
