About Tanya Loviz

Tanya Loviz is based out of Katoomba, Australia, but her unique and colorful paintings have found her a devoted following in Canada and all over the world. She is unafraid of addressing the personal in her work, which has led to some wonderful experiments with form, hue and subject matter. Her depictions of love—animal or human—are poignant and touching, but never lack the clever tongue in cheek tone that distinguishes her from other, less complicated artists.

Her search for self-discovery has led her down some interesting paths. She has studied many diverse subjects. The titles of just a few of them are: "The Psychology of the Selves" at the Australian institute of Relationship Training, "Meditation 1 & 2", "Holistic Counseling 1A & 1”, "Subtle Anatomy 1 & 2", "Music Therapy 1", "Anatomy 1A", "Yoga & Meditation" and "Crystal Bowl Sound Therapy” at Nature Care College.

Loviz has been painting for twelve years, resulting in a prodigious amount of paintings (over 700 at last count). Her interest in the environment has kept her involved and working with companies like Reverse Garbage, a co-op that collects industrial off cuts for creative community uses. She spent nine years teaching as well as an eventful month working on a fishing trawler, and her love of travel has kept her exploring various corners of the globe.

One of her latest projects is creating labels for Katoomba Wines. Her labels are fabulously colorful concoctions that would make anyone yearn for some vino. Tanya’s many interests and her beautiful paintings (some of which come with a poem, and all of which leave Tanya with her sign
