“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 of 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 art was her first and true love, 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 while studying and making art part-time. Tatjana is presently a full-time painter with a passion for the west coast and mountains.
Canadian Landscape enchanted Tatjana from the very first days in her new homeland. Her paintings are inspired by being immersed 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 to express her awe-inspiring discoveries.
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.
