On Etsy since 2016

Raised by artists and creative thinkers in an eclectic east coast artists community, Los Angeles based collage artist Tanya Mikaela has been creating in a variety of mediums throughout her life. She received a BFA from Parsons School of Design, is a member of both Collage Artists of America, and Los Angeles Experimental Artists Group. As a Spiritual Practitioner her Art of the Soul Workshops combine the healing arts with fine art to assist others in birthing and celebrating their own creativity, and through Spiritual & Creative Life Coaching she assists others in achieving their highest potential. Her work has been honored and collected on both coasts, and her collage of Obama was featured in Shepard Fairy’s Manifest Hope show in DC for the 2009 inaugural events. It is now part of the book, “Art for Obama”. Tanya is the recipient of numerous awards, among them two Peace Project awards, a Gold Key award, a Collage Artists of America award, and several American Art Awards. She has created art to benefit Doctors without Borders, Women Against Gun Violence, The Rescue Train, the Peace Project, and the Agape International Spiritual Center. A portion of all profits from her Art support the organization Feeding America. Tanya is an artist in residence at Ten Women on Montana, and her work is also available locally through Studio Five 08, Jalan Jalan, Aum and Garden, and Alice's Quiet Mind Bookstore. Her favorite form of expression is Upcycled Collage; layering torn reclaimed paper to express her spiritual vision through her artwork.

“In my collages, I layer the bits and pieces of reclaimed magazines, timeworn books, music scores, gift-wrapping paper, chocolate foil wrappers, newspaper and more, upcycling them into works of art. I am always amazed to see how these scraps of color and pattern somehow alchemize on my canvas with clarity and soul to reveal what I had only begun to imagine.”
