Tanya loves Fort St. John and says it is a vibrant town with active volunteers and an impressive art community. She appreciates the laid-back lifestyle, how neighbours know one another and help each other out. Tanya is an artist and loves creating in her spare time. She also enjoys spending time with her children, cooking and gardening.
Tanya opened her business, Spectrum Art Studios, in 2016 and explains that it is a revival of an earlier business she successfully operated from 1999-2008 called Northern North Designs - Artist For Hire. She is excited to be back offering her personalized artistic experiences while getting to know her clients and students. Tanya is proud of her professional art business and feels rewarded when she sees the expressions on her students' faces when they are first amazed at what they have created.
Tanya has noticed a revitalization occurring in the downtown core with more small businesses opening up. "Now, the downtown core is better kept with a fantastic array of locally owned businesses," said Tanya. "I believe the small business community will only continue to grow bigger and better," said Tanya and she is happy to be a part of it.
