Featured Artist at Sutherland Library - Tania Collins

After a successful and fulfilling career of teaching and working with art students at a variety of high schools in the Sydney metropolitan area, Tania's teaching career ended abruptly in 2003 when she was medically retired following a series of eye surgeries.

Tania needed to regain confidence and find a new path for her creativity that would suit her level of visual impairment. So began her new career as an artist.

Nature, land formations and surface textures provide Tania with much of her inspiration.

By using collage, mixed media and acrylics, Tania has been able to create rich surface qualities and find a new means of self expression.

Come and see some of Tania's works which are on display in the lounge area at the rear of Sutherland Library.
