Out of the Green


An Affair of the Mind

Tanya Kirouac is a guest artist at Leonardo Gallery, courtesy of Covent Garden Fine Art Gallery.


Although currently making her life in the Beaches neighbourhood of Toronto and in her Cherry Valley farmhouse in Prince Edward County, Tanya is originally born in Montréal, Québec. Educated in the Applied Arts, Tanya has worked as an Art Director and Graphic Designer for over 17 years. After re-aquainting herself to fine arts through education over 7 years ago, her passion for painting was re-ignited.

Today, Tanya is exhibiting throughout Canada and in the US, from Nova Scotia to Ottawa and in the west to Calgary. Most days she can be found in her studio in the East end of Toronto exploring the possibilities of oil and wax.

Encaustic is currently her medium of choice. Tanya's work details landscapes, interiors and abstract florals which evoke thoughts of nature and our environment. These visions explore the apparitions found in our incredible and ever-changing and delicate world. The inspiration for all of this work is found in the scenes of Prince Edward County, Northern Ontario and places where no-one else can see.
