Tanya Goodman Bailey

Here to Paint

Interested in Art as Appreciation

Tanya is a former therapist and yoga teacher from North London. 

Her belief is that paintings can bring a state of expansion or sustained appreciation (joy) through 'embodied appreciation' - tracing resonance of a painting through body sensation. 

By following how a colour or a shape affects physical sensation, it becomes a roadmap to play with a painting and gain perennial enjoyment of it.

Thanks to her excellent  tutors at The Essential School of Painting, the City Lit and Geraldine Swayne, she now paints mainly figurative, abstracts and small portraits in her home studio.
