Tanya says she just loves working with her hands. She is very accomplished as a weaver and creates beautiful, soft blanket fabrics of natural fibers .Tanya is also experimenting with Native meditative drumming as a way to calm and focus her mind. Her work in drawing and painting is a more recent vocation, and the use of repetitive pattern produced in both weaving and drumming is apparent in the kinds of imagery found in her artwork. Tanya has made the use of drawing templates her own, tracing them in overlapping layers that radiate out from the center of the page in mandala-like forms.
