Greetings!




My First Drawing Book
Age 8
Hi, I'm Tawnya from Minnesota, USA. I create whimsical art illustrations – traditional drawings & paintings. I'm self-taught and inspired by nature, cinema, legends and history. Working with children in the recent past (and my own inner-child!) strongly influences my happy art. I take a lot of design inspiration from Muriel Fahrion and Charles Schulz.

I love working with watercolor, india & acrylic inks - and in my sketchbook. I decided to focus on creating art in 2013, after all, drawing has been a life-long love! It only makes sense that I'd want to grow as an artist. So, I quit my job to focus more intensely in 2016. Since then, I've decided to sell prints & cards and join art-focused communities.

In 2017, I was invited to have my work published in a compendium of international up-and-coming artists, which was really exciting to be a part of. The beginning of 2018, I wrote and illustrated a children's book. I hopefully will have a dream fulfilled to find an editor and publisher in 2019. That would be so much fun! The next artistic endeavor I look forward to in 2019 is to explore linocut printmaking.

Thank you so much for your interest in learning more about me. I sprinkle recent artworks throughout the web, and I invite you to visit my social media links and blog.  ❤
