Tanja Groos is a Canadian artist who creates with oil paint, acrylic paint, mixed media and digital tools. She creates paintings that often merge human forms with active spaces, and look at nature in a colourful way. Soft, delicious gradient washes of colours coalescing with raucous textures are seen in many of her pieces.
An artist, designer, and traveller, Tanja has had group art exhibitions in Ontario and New York, and her art is owned in private collections in both the USA and Canada. Collectors include world-famous salsa dancer and choreographer Burju Perez. Her art has won awards and has been published. (Get the newsletter for notice of upcoming exhibitions.)
