Hello and welcome BSFs!
I am your author and host Tanya. I am an artist admired for my meticulous sense of order, strikingly acute lines, bold, unyielding saturated colour and (in more recent years) the stimulating divergence and texture of mixed media and textile appliqué. I am an artist dedicated to celebrating and empowering women, passionately revealing her sensuality, opening her heart and saluting her confidence and spirited strength of character upon the canvas. But more about me in my next post.
Right now I would like to introduce you to the revival of my blog, formally known as: Fresh & Raw, now appropriately named She is Art.
In 2011, I had began publishing an online magazine named Fresh Palette centering on featuring artists from all around the world, all genres, all concepts, young artists, old artists, famous artists, and the dexterous unknown. In 2012 I introduced a sister magazine Raw Canvas, an all encompassing 18+ edition.
Originally both magazines were monthly issues, including many special features and a very small team of volunteer writers. However, nearing the end of 2013 both my magazines were put on the back-burner.
In 2016 it felt like the time to do some dusting off, take Fresh Palette and Raw Canvas off of the shelf and back onto your screens. With a new format, seeing both publications combine (hence Fresh & Raw), and a re-focus; narrowing the field to celebrating the female artist, complimenting my purpose and mission as a visual artist.
Once again, the rendition fell to the wayside due to other more pressing matters.
Now, here we go again, 2021. I am reviving, refreshing and redefining She is Art! With a new name, though nevertheless, the same game plan: First and foremost, celebrating, empowering and showcasing female artists of our time by highlighting and sharing their incredibly unique artwork.
Plus... Never forgetting the men in our lives, each month She is Art. raises a toast to a talented male artist.
Extra Content... I have learnt and grown so much over my 46 years, as an artist and as a woman in this world... and it's not over yet! I share my journey with you.
I do hope you all enjoy. I would love for your feedback at any time! I even welcome suggestions; perhaps there's an amazing female artist you know. So leave your comments below, or contact me via Facebook or Instagram or email firstname.lastname@example.org
