Why Commission Custom Art

Peggy Guggenheim, Art Collector & Patron

You are sensitive and sophisticated and you love to harmonize your space to your unique lifestyle…

In your environment everything has a story and a beautiful memory. Whether luxury or rustic, classic or modern, every work of art in your living space is a Conversation Piece with a unique story, sourced and curated by you.
While the patron system of supporting artists has been gone for centuries, contemporary artists continue to count on local Collectors for their support. When you commission custom art, you are helping artists thrive to create more art and in turn support their local community.

Celebrity Portraits for American Icon Awards

And its apparent she’s well on her way. The California–based artist is known for her obsession with color, pop-culture icons and splendor, often incorporating natural elements in her paintings like coffee, tobacco, diamonds and gold. Fortunate to live in the art colony of Laguna Beach, just south of the Hollywood scene, her relationships with the film industry, celebrities and entrepreneurs allowed her to make a statement in the celebrity art world and establish herself as a top contemporary portrait painter.

She’s been asked to paint the portraits of the 2019 American Icon Awards ceremony nominees – Al Pacino, Evander Holyfield, Robert De Niro and Quincy Jones, that will be signed and sold at the auction to benefit the St. Jude Hospital. Read > How I became a Celebrity Portrait Artist

Creative Process

Tatyana’s creative process is fluid and intuitive, up until the last moment, everything could change. She works methodically and passionately, not settling until it feels perfect, some paintings taking years to complete. A prolific painter, similar to her master teachers, Tatyana has many paintings in progress, waiting for the inspiration to progress to the next step.  She uses quality professional oil paints, like Gamblin, Winsor & Newton and Da Vinci and favors Fredrix linen canvas. Tatyana was fortunate to learn directly from the great masters by making replicas at the National Gallery of Art, and has developed a glazing technique which gives her oil paintings luminosity and depth of color. What is unique about her works is the use of natural materials, from plants & feathers to diamonds & gold. Check out Tatyana’s Studio.
