Artists Information

Birds sing, dance, fight, fly, court, breed, claim territory, pair for life, play the field and fool around. They hold funerals, have socials, eat fermented berries and perform mating rituals that leave me baffled. The subject matter is endless. The farthest I travelled to see a species was 12,000 kilometers, crazy, right?

I hope my work inspires people to spend time outdoors and find a reason to be in nature.  Many people do not see birds because they are small and fleeting, but with a long lens, I witness the most extraordinary behavior that inspires me. When I paint birds, my goal is for the viewer to connect with the playful, human side of birds; to see into their eyes and realize there is much more than expected.

Rose Tanner is an award-winning artist who loves the outdoors and studying birds. She is dedicated to portraying her subjects using traditional oil painting techniques, but she believes it’s her attention to their inner being that give’s them their lifelike quality in her paintings.  She travels widely for her subjects and is active in supporting endangered birds and their habitat.

​Rose is a signature  member of The Federation of Canadian Artists (FCA), Juries shows and volunteers on the FCA Victoria Chapter executive.  

 

Rose studied illustration at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco and oil painting with Daniel Keys as well as several other contemporary master painters. She has a solid professional background in publishing and software design, utilizing her talent to develop and promote the work of others.

 

Rose loves to teach and share her knowledge of classical oil painting through her online workshops.
