Hello! My name is Tanya, and I am an artist and a maker. I love making witty and stylish art prints, jewelry, knitted hats, mittens and scarves, pin back buttons and badges, magnets and more. Everything is handmade by me, in my little cottage in San Francisco.
I started crafting at an early age, and began selling my goods in high school. I officially launched my art and accessories business in 2003, when I received my first big order of 200 knitted hats and scarves. In 2009, I created Button Club as a way to collaborate with other artists, and bring miniature works of art to mailboxes all over the world.
I am always exploring new things to make. I love being able to take a creative project from initial idea to completion.
“It doesn’t matter what activity anyone chooses. If you take any activity, any art, any discipline, any skill, take it and push it as far as it will go, push it beyond where it has ever been before, push it to the wildest edge of edges, then you force it into the realm of magic. And it doesn’t matter what it is that you select, because when it has been pushed far enough it contains everything else.“ Tom Robbins
I can often be found knitting on the train, at parties, and sometimes while watching tv, (though this last method is the least productive). I love to go to the farmer's market, play scrabble, walk my dog on the beach, and learn new things.
