Tonnja Kopp is a self taught artist based in the Squamish, BC area who strives to provide beauty through art for all her patrons. She grew up in Switzerland where her experiences were distilled into a passion for art which has flourished in her new home in Canada. She describes her talent as a gift and here in Squamish she has found inspiration in the spectacular landscape and amazing wildlife of British Columbia. Bears have been her favourite animal since childhood and appear often in her work as the embodiment of the raw strength and contrasting tranquility of nature. What she likes most about painting is the possibility to combine her imagination with the accuracy of realism, while highlighting the beauty of nature in a novel perspective.
Her main medium is acrylic which she uses on various material like canvas, wood and mdf panels. She hopes to expand knowledge and creative expertise across all endeavours.
