My name is Tanya Marie Reeves and I am a visual artist from Broken Hill, NSW Australia. I am a self-taught painter with over 20 years’ experience, working with both acrylics and textile applique. With beauty and passion, I portray empowered women upon the canvas by modern design likened to a combination of Pop Art, Art Deco, Cubism, Symbolism and Art Nouveau. I love to choreograph saturated block colour, simple lines, geometry and meticulous precision along with intricate patterns, textures and conceptual connotations.
I am influenced by strong, empowered women whom are also vulnerable in-kind to be passionate, sensual and openhearted; I am influenced by colour and beauty, by divinity and magic, and by the spirited feminine connection with nature, the earth, and the universe. I am encouraged by my own growth, her lifelong struggles with depression and anxiety and her personal journey through many of life’s tough lessons. As a mature adult I realised something inside of myself I never knew existed, and I am now driven to help other women open their hearts and minds, and ignite their desires to all of the possibilities within themselves.
My artwork has been included in digital art displays in Times Square - New York (US), The Louvre - Paris (France) and at SCOPE Miami, Florida (US). I have received several Certificates of Honour and Excellence for many calls and exhibitions, winning the Gold Award for the Masters of Art International, (along with Silver Best Illustration) showing in London, England. I have exhibited in supplemental art shows in Australia having had artworks accepted and displayed in several exhibitions in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, including the reputable “The Other Art Fair” presented by Saatchi Art. I have completed an art residency and exhibited my artwork in Nice, France and I am currently on a 12-week art residency with Valletta Contemporary in my ancestral country of Malta.
These days I am wholly focussed on creating new artwork specifically for female leaders to grow her success while continuing to embody her divine authenticity and further ignite her desires to always honour and nurture her higher self. I feel very fortunate to be able to do what I love in life and I try to harness and relish every opportune moment.
"The gift that keeps on giving."
"Buying art online is always a leap of faith as you haven't experienced that in-person 'feeling' for the artwork. However, I can honestly say that Briana looks lovelier in the flesh that I could have hoped and I haven't regretted the purchase for a second. She's vibrant, colourful, playful and holds your attention. So much so that I have bought her a sister as a companion piece!
Tanya was very easy to deal with, always accommodating and eager to please. And her packing was sensational ;) I'll be back..."
