Bone, Tanya

Tanya F. Bone grew up on the Canadian prairies and spent much of her childhood on her grandparents’ farm in Saskatchewan. Later, living in Vancouver, British Columbia, she methodically pursued her art training while contemporaneously raising a family, and working as a paralegal and Crown Prosecutor assistant.

Bone completed art studies at Emily Carr College of Art and Design, Langara College, and the Federation of Canadian Artists in Vancouver, where during her training she received Great Distinction Status recognition. Later, she completed a full term at Watts Atelier of the Arts, San Diego, CA.

Bone holds Senior Signature status membership with the Federation of Canadian Artists and America’s Northwest Watercolor Society as well as Associate Membership with Oil Painters of America.
