Tanya McKay

Tanya grew up in a military environment, living in barracks in Germany and Northern Ireland for most of her childhood. At 18 she joined the RAF and later met her husband who currently serves in the Army. Since being diagnosed with depression, Tanya channels much of her energy into playing the piano and her artwork which she finds a great escape from the pressure of military life and family upheaval that can result. Appreciating its simplicity, she mainly works in pencil, enjoying the texture and contrast it can provide.
