Throughout her creative career, Tania Chanter has worked in a diverse range of roles, including 12 years in advertising at The Age, as a voice-over artist and media presenter, and as the director of a graphic design company. Based in the Yarra Valley, Tania began painting as a creative experiment with her children and fell in love with the expression and freedom that it provided. These days, the artist predominantly draws inspiration from nature, painting in an intuitive, uninterrupted manner based on what she sees around her: the depth and richness of the colours, the complexity of the sky, the romantic feeling of stormy clouds, the churning foam of the ocean on those days and the sunlight playing through tall grasses as they bend and wave. From the sweep of the vast landscape down to the bee among flowers, nature’s inspiration is endless.
