Tanis teaches the kids how to incorporate life and art, with natures’ interaction in the city. “Teaching these children to see the world through different eyes, has been a facinating experience. They are brilliant artists. This experience has been a gift.
We must teach our children to embrace life through an open mind.”

Spending a lifetime exploring the arts, weaving, painting, creating functional art and jewelry Tanis’ love for, “China Painting” will keep this lost art alive. Black Roses are the theme of her Porcelain Art for 2006.
As winter approaches, “I like to use natural and man made fibers to weave wall hangings, crocheted baby bundlers, shawls, scarves and hats.”
Tanis’ inspiration comes from nature and the outdoors. Her love for nature, fly fishing and gardening has inspired her Fly Box, Wooden Purse and Jewelry Box line. Thank you for viewing my Creations.
