Creating a bold statement in any space without saying a damned word.
I love the sensual curves of the female form, the striking boldness of saturated acrylics, the splendour of intense brilliant block colour and striking contrast; this is where my artwork as an adult began over 25 years ago. And while the basis of my unique style has remained, overtime, what began predominantly as aesthetic art, has become something else entirely.
Ultimately, through my own life struggles and experiences during my early thirties, I had begun to learn about what can be hidden deep inside oneself; the strength and determination which arose from within me which I had never even known existed, became my driving force, in both my life and my art.
And so, I create empowering paintings of women. I take a woman’s inner strength and I bring it bolstering to the surface, choreographed with passion, heightening her physical prowess, celebrating her diversity, revelling in her beauty and sexuality, revealing her sensuality, secrets and mystery. And most significantly, saluting her confidence, heart and spirited strength of character.
My technique predominantly consists of strikingly acute lines, bold, unyielding saturated colour and (in more recent years) the stimulating divergence and texture of mixed media and textile applique. I am admired particularly for my precision, meticulous sense of order and exceptional print-like quality.
My name is Tanya Marie Reeves and I am a 40-something single mum of two now grown, a self-taught professional artist, born, raised, residing and creating, in charge of my own business in my hometown of Broken Hill, Australia. I am absolutely still learning. I am growing and changing, living and loving life on purpose everyday.
I am a woman on a mission creating exquisitely distinct works of art, with bold originality and style, a seductive elegance of beauty and character, and a fierce steadfast energy, celebrating and empowering women.
Through sensational colour, beauty and passion my artwork will captivate an audience, spark connections, conversations and inspirations. It will empower and liberate every woman and ignite the champion in every man.
