Biography


My name is Tanja Wegerer.
I was born and raised in Germany. In 2001, due to business, I moved to Cincinnati, Ohio.  After retirement in 2015, I moved with my family to Jacksonville, Florida.
 
I have had a lifelong passion for art and I wanted to be an artist from a young age. However, at the insistence of my parents, I took a more practical career path in engineering. After 25 years, I retired from a successful career in Product Development at a big international Company to immerse myself in studying and creating art as a fulltime pursuit.  Throughout my life, even during my professional life, I studied with a diverse group of international artists, and I continue working with local Jacksonville artists to progress my artistic evolution.
 
My primary inspiration comes from my love for nature and the beauty of nature itself. I also stay closely connected to trends in fashion, travel, environment and culture and draw inspiration for my artwork from all these elements. 
 
I am continuously sketching and producing studies to form a thorough understanding of my subject matter. In addition, I produce fully rendered drawings and paintings. With my professional background in Product Development, I love to experiment and combine my preferred media (colored pencils and acrylic) with natural products and other media, in order to create new and unexpected outcomes like my hand painted and crafted pansy necklaces.
 
With my vivid and vibrant representational nature scenes inspired by the rich, beautiful local Floridian and international scenery and flora, my ultimate goal is to connect people to the beauty of nature and wildlife that surrounds us and that is often overlooked in a busy daily life.
