Modeling has been a part of my life since I was 18. I have grown with it and respect the synergy that the photographer (and others) and I can create. I bring all of my self to a shoot. Below is my bio:

The science of meditation is a universal practice of training the mind, expanding awareness, clearing the subconscious, and cultivating the healing capability within every person. Meditation rings harmonious with all spiritual and religious paths because it is a science, in that it’s results can be observably repeated upon administering the techniques. We can create peace.
Tanya’s dance training evolved from freestyle to 4 years of collegiate training at UW-Madison to a mentorship in the art of Breaking (Breakdance/B-Girling). Tanya trains and performs with other dancers in the hip-hop community. Her dance practice and performance work is ritualistic, a conscious lifestyle and a constant challenge. Her vision is to continue to express and create through this medium, dance, to enjoy the community and further explore the sacred aspects of dance which point to healing and transcendence. "I try to capture that sense of transcendence, creativity, emotion and feminine mystery through modeling. Photography has been a healing process for me and has allowed me the opportunity to channel life and grow with greater awareness."
“A daily practice keeps me motivated with great faith in our potential for attaining freedom! My intent is to participate in the process of removing painful limits and encourage healthy lifestyle choices. My creative disciplines as a BGirl and work as a model, performer and healer, connects me to the daily lifestyle of health and transformation”, says Tanya.
