My paintings are largely autobiographical, an acute observation of the constant transformation of everything that enters my life. The bridge linking life and art is the surface I work upon in graphic design. By immersing myself in it, I go beyond myself, and become increasingly free. I use it to investigate, explore, manipulate and ultimately celebrate the way in which we see, in which we perceive things. This becomes a valuable exchange, a window between two worlds — an inner one and an outer one.
Painting, like and life itself, is a journey. I visualize what I want to achieve yet without the knowledge of how I am going to reach my destination. My satisfaction results not from my successful arrival, but from the discoveries and inventions I encounter en route.
My journey begins with feeling, then thought. Shape and color follow with the harmony between texture and gesture being my obsession. As I symbolically gather the pieces of the puzzle, my main interest, my subject is the light, the subtle equilibrium between light and shadow. The complex interaction between memories and the idea of memory is my theme. What is interesting is what is timeless, neither a reflection of the current day not the nostalgia of the past but that which endures. The ordinary becomes extraordinary.
Each painting is unique just as each viewer's experience of it is unique. African motives, human emotions, animals, trees, minimalist in nature and undiscovered realms still compositions emphasize the relation between the individual and the collective dimension in the sense that the work stands as both a subjective testament in the space of recollection and a public memory in the contemporary setting. It all represents a diary in images. I propose. I do not impose.
Tanya Hansen - established artist, who was born and raised in Ukraine, surrounded by beautiful
nature and famous artists. Ten years in the advertising business as a graphic designer and project manager
inspired her to create paintings that everyone likes and everyone wants to have in their collections.
Even after moved to the USA in 2014 she continued her art creation. In USA, Tanya Hansen continues
to progress his passion for painting and transferred to the canvas most of her graphic designer works,
which now successfully sold across the United States.
Her first painting – Sense of Sight, was sold to a collector from California, which marked the
beginning of her well-known and unusual line in the painting, full of emotional content.
Tanya works with acrylic, oil, pastel. Most time she works under the order painting for , banks, offices,
showrooms and private orders. Tanya Hansen periodically participates in national, local and online exhibitions. One such exhibition was Animals Art Competition, Online Gallery Light Space&Time.

In 2015 she began working under the name – TanyaSunArt, which characterizes its light, sunlight and creative character and mood with which it works. Now Tanya has concentrated all attention on abstract modern art, contemporary art. Landscapes, animals, people feelings - this is all , what Tanya Hansen with pleasure leaves on the canvas. But the biggest inspiration for her - this is a seascape. Ocean, - this is infinite element is always looks the same, but different every time. The inspiration of every painting she does comes from what is around her, which she believes is nothing than a pure energy, usually shown to her like feeling, image or thought. This energy initiates a process of creation that ends with a new piece of art. The composition and colors in her paintings are the feelings that she has in herself. Which way they will take her, - she never knows. At the end Tanya’s goal is to through passionate work, make art that is the source of joy and excitement to the observer.
