Meet Our Guest

Hi there creatives, I’m Tanyalee and I am primarily a mixed media art journaler who is beginning to dabble in works on canvas and other substrates. You may also know me as the face behind the newly published Brush Magazine – a project that has been a dream of mine for some time. I have always been a creative type, starting with sketching cartoon characters as a young girl, right through to now where I work as Graphic Designer and Social Media Consultant. I strongly believe that everyone can make art and be creative, you just need to believe in yourself and follow your instincts. Getting messy with paint (and I mean messy – I LOVE to use my hands rather than brushes) is like therapy to me, when times are tough, I get stuck into my art journal.
