A WAY OF SEEING: THE NATURAL WORLD AS MUSE
Decorative painter, artist and textile designer Tania Vartan creates beautiful, realistic nature-based creations. From hand- painted panels of tromp l'oeil scenes (commissioned by creme de la creme interior designers over the years) to highly textural natural materials found in the world, her designs have an old world sensibility to them, inspired by travel and natural wonders. The New York and Kentucky-based artist sees travel as her muse, and the unique designs and paintings she dreams up have a fantastical quality to them. Available through Savel in New York, Bradley in Chicago and Atlanta, DeCioccio in Cincinnati, and Ken Kehoe in Houston, the fresh traditional designs add a dose of the unexpected.
