Tanja was born 29.5.71 in Bern. Her inspiration comes from the depth of her soul.

The marathon runner gets her ideas from nature and the beauty that she sees all around her, which she transforms into works of art.

Tanja is guided by her natural instincts. This is always evident in her work and the harmony she creates between colours and materials.

Her creative period began a few years ago and is always strongly influenced by her emotions.

The Bern-born artist has lived in Carona, an artists' village above  Lake Lugano, with her husband and two children since 1997.

She held her first public exhibition in the autumn of 2003 in Carona. The event was curated by
the art critic Paolo Blendinger.
