With my work I strive to create worlds that others can escape to. I believe Art has the power to inspire, provoke, heal, challenge and even offer hope to others. It can also provide a new and interesting perspective.

About Me

My name is Tanya Varga, I’m a digital artist and I attended the Academy of Art University where I studied 2D Illustration/Animation and Advertising. I currently work as a freelance digital artist and graphics designer and have also done oil portrait commissions.

I have worked with traditional mediums, such as oil and charcoal, most of my life and discovered digital painting a few years ago and have loved it since. I am completely self-taught when it comes to digital painting and have picked up my experience from a lot of experimentation and practice. Aside from digital art I also enjoy doing many other things in my free time that allow me to be creative such as sewing and cake decorating etc. I also love nature & animals and really enjoy going hiking and bike riding with my husband.

I’m a huge Star Trek, Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead fan. I love art, science, music and movies of all kinds, I especially enjoy mind-bending films. My favorite directors are Darren Aronofsky, Cameron Crowe, Ang Lee, Lars Von Trier, James Cameron, Panos Cosmatos, Tim Burton, Alfonso Cuaron, Ridley Scott and many others.

I live in California with my husband, daughter and a very messy budgie/parakeet named “Spock”

What I love most about art is that it gives me the chance to bring visions to life.

Though I am open to commissions (if the right opportunity comes along) my main focus now is primarily as a print artist.

If interested in licensing or possibly commissioning some work from me, please feel free to get in touch. Contact
