About Tanya

I am constantly learning and I am highly grateful for the opportunity to pass on what I learn to others. Teaching is a beautiful cycle of giving and receiving and I am excited to extend my knowledge to others.

I attended the Orange County High School of the Arts in California where I first began developing many of my artistic skills and discovered my love for design. Afterwards, I continued my education at New York University, expanding my area of interest to human rights issues and psychoanalysis, while pursuing my passions in Graphic Design and film. I worked throughout my time at NYU in administration, advancing my skills with Microsoft Word and Excel.

I currently lead a nonprofit organization, both creatively and administratively, to empower survivors of domestic violence with art therapy. I have been teaching vocational skills such as sewing, fabric painting, and marketing for 2 years. I look forward to hearing from you and helping you with your endeavors!
