A native of former Yugoslav Republic of Croatia, Tatjana studied at University of Zagreb and finished at Georgetown University in Washington, DC. Her pastels and acrylics have a very European feel, with Picasso-like exaggeration in the people. She has built a large following and her original paintings reside in numerous private collections and museums all over the world. Her clients include Fortune 500 companies, such as Perrier, who features her work on their bottles. Her work is shown in galleries in the United States, Canada, Europe and Japan. She divides her time between her home on the Adriatic coast and Boulder, Colorado.
