BIOGRAPHY
...In being behind the camera, making a photograph, i find myself inspired, enchanted and seduced by the beauties from all walk of life...whether it is a rock, a green grass or just a gesture, an expression from someone.....In being a model, i live in my own fantasies.......................................... In self-portraits, "i use them to express feelings and emotions that i can not normally express in daily life due to social constraints or circumstances", inspired by a quote of the 21th century painter/nude model -Georgia O'Keeffe. .....................................................................................................................I would like to extend my deepest gratitude to friends and others who i have been lucky enough to encounter and to allow me to photograph and exhibit them. It seems like i have lived my life vicariously with adventures, excitements, pain and joy through witnessing and recording yours. With heartfelt appreciations for allowing me to be a part in each of your private world. Last but not least, thank you for taking your time to visit my photo gallery. Your visit has breathed life and inspiration into my artwork. Your comments have been nourishing my artistic soul. Warmly, Tanya...................................................Here are a few of my favorite quotes that i can identify with @ this time. "Artist souls are like the waves of the ocean. There is something constantly acting upon them that shapes their existence," Dorothea Lange...................... "I should be as simple as a little folk song, artlessly sensual, open-eyed," Paul Klee......... .................. "There have always been, and there still are, two themes in everything i do: freedom and pleasure," Man Ray. ..........................."I take blurred pictures, because I take pictures no matter what the light is. If I want to take a picture, I do not care if there is light or no light. If I want to take a picture, I take it no matter what," Nan Goldin. ............................"If I knew what the picture was going to be like I wouldn't make it. It was almost like it was made already. The challenge is more about trying to make what you can't think of." Cindy Sherman. .........................Wish i could quote more, but they are good for now :o).
