About the Artist

Basket of Eggs
Basket of Eggs" - oil on canvas - 24" x 36" - 2013

Born in Thailand, Tan moved to Virginia many years ago to raise her family. She creates strikingly detailed oil paintings on both canvas and linen. Her artwork is inspired by her love of nature, her farm in Thailand, the gardens at her home in Virginia, and other parks and gardens near her home from the Blue Ridge Parkway in Virginia to Longwood Gardens in Pennsylvania. History Tan began painting when she was 15 years old in Thailand. Her Mother was a member of the Royal Thai Air Force and introduced Tan to some of the full-time Air Force artists. These artists would help her with her artwork throughout her high school years. She began selling her artwork while in high school and by the time she was attending university her work was largely portraits and wildlife scenes done in oil, acrylic and charcoal. Current Artwork Tan currently lives in Northern Virginia where she has extensive gardens and still travels to her family farm on the Chao Phraya River in Thailand where, along with a number of tropical flowers, they raise bananas, coconuts, and mangos. In addition to commissions, Tan's recent artwork has been focused on nature and based on the gardens, flowers and wildlife at her home in Virginia, her farm in Thailand, and other parks and gardens in and around Virginia. Tan's artwork is available online through the Tan's Gallery online store, at The Gateway Gallery in Round Hill VA, and at various shows and locations in Virginia, Maryland, and Washington DC.
