About Me

Formerly a professional and successful singer/songwriter/musician and after touring, performing and recording a CD in America from 2001-2004 returned home to Australia and began to pursue an art career.

Born in Hamburg, Germany. Moved to Australia with my parents when a young child.

I currently reside on the Southern NSW coast of Australia.

Studied art with world renowned artist Howard David Johnson in 2006-2008. Was mentored privately by a former University Art Teacher.

I work primarily with acrylics, oils and impasto medium.

Primarily influenced by the work of the old impressionist and pre-raphaelite masters. My artwork is predominantly spiritual/religious for which I am most known and commissioned for. My personal faith is extremely deep and I pour that great love and faith into each and every painting.

Horses are also a great passion of mine and in my depictions of then I focus on their personality, form, power and movement.

The eyes of all my subjects are where I excel, bringing the light and life to shine within them which draws the viewer in and makes a connection with the subject.

I strive for one important element in my work…to evoke emotion in the viewer. I focus on power, movement and form with which to draw in the viewer and inspire an emotional response.

Busy With Ebay Store

Busy With Ebay Store

If you're wondering why I've been so quiet it's because I'm painting every day and selling works at my Ebay Store: http://myworld.ebay.com.au/tahnja I haven't had time to share the works here yet as commissions have come in and I'm working hard to get things done in time for Christmas. Anyone who wants to follow what I have for sale then feel free to follow my Ebay Store where I list Religious and Equine artworks almost daily. Tahnja

TV Special Featuring My Artworks

TV Special Featuring My Artworks

I thought I should let you all know that this Spring, in America and around the world, a great number of my religious works will be featured on the world's largest Catholic TV Station, EWTN. The works will be used as meditation for a Rosary led by Mother Angelica and this will also be made into a DVD so a great many people will now see my work. I'm hoping that many more religious commissions from people and Churches around the world will start to come in as that is a huge goal for me. And also, I'm not sure I want to go to Germany and leave Australia or my family. I'm thinking that this new opportunity with EWTN could open many more doors

You have an absolutely stunning gallery!
Noticed that you haven't been here on dA for awhile (10 weeks absence as of March 22nd, 2014).

Anyway, I do hope that you are doing OK.

I just happened to come across a comment that you left for someone on a piece that they did of St. Maximilian Kolbe and I remembered that you are a committed Roman Catholic, so I decided to swing by your page here on dA.

Maybe in due time you shall return.

Take care (and be well) ...
