Tanya Kirouac

Tanya Kirouac was born and raised in Montreal, Canada and spent the early part of her career in art direction and graphic design. In 2002, she shifted to the full-time production of fine art. Her focus is abstract images that emerge from lingering memories, impressions of places experienced or imagined.

My inspiration is experiential, derived from my love of the simple beauty that I encounter in everyday life.  Collecting images in silence to store in my archives and draw upon during the physical exploration of my work in either encaustic or oil/cold wax.

The painting process involves building up layers, then removing it again, over and over, finally scraping or carving areas of color to reveal the underlying story. The moody, simple landscapes that emerge expose my connection to my environment and history and invite viewers to reflect on their own experiences.

Kirouac’s work can be found in collections throughout the world and in the U.S. and Canada.
