Tanya Varga (formerly Tanya Wheeler) is a freelance digital and traditional media artist living in San Jose, California. She attended the Academy of Art University in San Francisco where she studied 2D illustration/animation and advertising.
Having worked for years with traditional mediums, such as oil and charcoal, she eventually discovered digital painting and has loved it ever since. Unlike traditional painting, however, she is completely self-taught when it comes to the digital medium. She has picked up her skills with a lot of hard work, experimentation and practice and she is currently working as a freelance graphics artist, concept artist, and illustrator. Tanya finds art, regardless of medium, rewarding as it allows her to bring her visions to life.
Her work has been featured in various publications such as Spectrum (The Best in Contemporary Fantastic Art), Expose (The Finest Digital Art in the Known Universe), Exotique (The Worlds Most Beautiful CG Character Art), Corel Painter, ImagineFX magazine and other publications.
