Tanya Scharaschkin is a botanist and artist, based in Tasmania. Tanya conducts a variety of workshops as a way of sharing her enthusiasm for plants. She hopes her art will inspire others to not only admire plants but also develop an understanding and appreciation for the biology of plants. Most of Tanya’s projects incorporate a botanical theme, although she has designed, made and exhibited some mathematically-motivated quilts. Her artwork is held in private collections, in Australia and overseas.
