Deciding to follow her true passion of painting, Tansy spent the years after graduation showing and selling her art throughout the lower mainland. Now married with two young boys, she lives in Deep Cove and continues to develop as an artist and dedicate herself to her painting.

“ My mother is a painter and that’s where I was first exposed to Fauvism and Naive art. I was instinctively drawn to their color and shape. Like these amazing forms of art, I like to represent any given object in its simplest, yet still recognizable form. Vibrant colors, the lights and shadows are my vessel to communicate that. Plus, why not surround yourself with color, it makes your life so much brighter.”
