AN ESTABLISHED ARTIST from South Louisiana, Tanya Firmin Dischler, originally from Franklin, now resides in Mandeville. She studied at the University of Southwestern Louisiana, Louisiana Tech University and various artist workshops throughout the United States, Mexico, France and Indonesia.
Dischler has a unique way of expressing her interest in nature. Her subjects include animals, birds, fish, frogs, the flora and fauna of South Louisiana, and anything else that imposes itself on her imagination. With her ability to depict these everyday subject matters intertwined with interesting background shapes and patterns, her paintings are not as simple as one would assume. She has considerable facility with technique and imagery, and has a unique way of expressing her love of nature in all of her vivid paintings. The fresh approach in the use of colors skillfully applied to each of her paintings gives her compositions the unique feeling of “coming to life.” Dischler’s paintings are mysterious and intensely bright acrylics that possess the visual and visceral impact of abstraction, while the main subject matter of each painting remains easily recognizable.
