“Every color, shape, and pattern found in nature is a gift and a reminder to preserve the world’s natural treasures. I collect these gifts and put them on stage in my paintings, as my offerings to the lovers or land and art.”
Tatjana Mirkov-Popovicki is a Canadian landscape painter based in Port Moody, British Columbia, where she emigrated from Serbia in 1994. Although her childhood was filled with drawing, the challenging reality of her native country made her choose education in science. She graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering and pursued a Hi-Tech career. As soon as she settled in Canada, she embraced visual art as her career of passion.
Canadian Landscape enchanted Tatjana from the very first days in her new homeland. Her paintings begin with immersion in nature as she hikes up a mountain, walks through a forest, or beachcombs in a secluded cove. She takes photographs and makes quick sketches on her trips. Back in the studio, she uses the acrylic medium to concoct chromatic mixtures and organic forms, capturing the awe-inspiring scenes found in the Great Canadian Outdoors.
Tatjana is a Past President, a Senior Signature Artist (SFCA) and an Honorable Lifetime Member of the Federation of Canadian Artists. Her paintings have been exhibited, collected and represented by art galleries since 2005.
Her early work includes watercolor portraiture for which she received numerous honors.
Storytelling is in Tatjana’s genes, In addition to telling stories with a paintbrush, she also writes literary short stories. Her writing journey is captured on her writing blog.
