Tania BolinYuma, AZ
Tania Bolin is an artist from Yuma, Arizona. Her artistic process began as a child when she remembers a box of crayons, markers, and a coloring book being her best friends. As she grew older the fascination of transmitting imagery that existed in her mind onto a piece of paper blew her mind. It was then when she discovered that her love for creating art was more than just a hobby and decided to make it a career. Tania attended California State University Northridge where she received a Bachelor's Degree in Art. Her primary source of inspiration is nature. Her art is characterized by vibrant colors, contrasting shapes, and bold compositions.
Tania's paintings have been part of different exhibitions in Arizona. Her painting "Dreamy Dragonfly" was part of the 2015 Southwestern Invitational. A statewide art event designed to document, exhibit, and celebrate Arizona's most exciting visual artists. Her work was juried and selected to travel to five prestigious galleries throughout Arizona for one year. In October, 2015, Tania received the Helios Award. This recognition is given to someone who is new in the arts scene and who illustrates an exceptional aspiration to be an advocate of the Arts in Yuma.
