Tetiana Zakharova


I was born and received my artistic education in Ukraine. In 1996, I move to Canada and now reside in Vancouver, British Columbia.

I have been amazed and inspired by the spectacular Pacific Northwest whenever I hike through the rain forest, watch each unique sunset over the ocean or travel through the B.C. Interior. Nature is plentiful in its gifts of beauty and I yearn to capture that perfect and blissful scene and transpose it onto canvas. I observe the world around me and search for unique angles and unreal color combinations to create a disposition of nature in my paintings; as in, a sort of mood that the paintings should bring to their audience.

As I start each new painting, my heart leaps with joy as I fathom the beauty that is yet to emerge from my imagination. But beauty is subjective; therefore, I try to leave a segment of my art open to interpretation. Part of this can be seen in the near absence of clearly separating lines and boarders in my works. This lets the audience create these lines and is a vital part of my “disposition of nature” as it lets each individual’s unique mind create such lines and boarders and differently interpret the painting’s mood.

I try to distill both drama and tranquility of natural landscapes by injecting fluidity, depth and emotion into each image. My goal is to touch others emotionally and positively through my art; as well, to delve all the different ideas and sceneries in my own mind, for my own enjoyment.
