“Third Day” by Tanya Witzel




After receiving a B.S. degree from the University of Illinois, Tanya pursued additional training at the Art Institute of Chicago and the Illinois Institute of Technology. The emphasis on color and design studies at I.I.T has had a marked impact on the direction of her work. It led to the use of multiple gradations of value which cause geometrical forms to take on depth and dimension. The result conveys the sensation of going beyond the canvas, drawing the viewer into the painting, down corridors, through archways and between columns.  Thus, they stimulate both the eye and the intellect.


“Phantasia” by Tanya Witzel




Tanya  taught high school in Chicago, Washington DC and Maryland while continuing to paint and exhibit. She also exhibited in the New York area and Los Angeles before moving to Florida.  She is an award winning artist who has also had her artwork published in American Home Magazine, The Designer (Cover), Interiors Magazine, Arts Magazine, Galleries Magazine (Washington DC) and Potomac Magazine (Washington Post).


“Archways” by Tanya Witzel


Inspired by travel, the “Illusion” theme was nurtured resulting in paintings of columns and pillars as abstractions of Greco-Roman architecture. The application of the subtle color gradation, light and shadow, plus the use of perspective, allows an infinite number of variations on the basic architectural fantasy theme. This variation is clearly demonstrated by a series combining architectural structure and form with the broadening dimension of textural surfaces, patterns and nature’s vistas. The result for the viewer is a contemporary glimpse of illusionary forms that hover between past, present and future, drawing the viewer into a fantastic voyage
