Today we feature the portfolio of artist Tania Willard. Tania's work crosses many mediums and I love her mixture of organic with elements of synthetic colour. Tania also works as a designer and illustrator under the name Red Willow Designs. The work I chose for this feature comes from Tania's series called Claiming Space.
"Tania Willard, Secwepemc Nation, works within the shifting ideas of contemporary and traditional as it relates to cultural arts and production.Often working with bodies of knowledge and skills that are conceptually linked to her interest in intersections between Aboriginal and other cultures. Willard has worked as an artist in residence with gallery gachet in Vancouver’s Downtown East Side, the Banff Centre's visual arts residency, fiction and Trading Post and was a curator in residence with grunt gallery." - www.taniawillard.ca
