Tanya Louise Workman is a Toronto-based interdisciplinary artist, storytelling facilitator and journalist who works with images, audio and text to unravel relationships between our interior and exterior selves. Most recently she has been experimenting with the use of sound and spoken word to explore the connections between embodied experience and voice, and to engage more intimately with the listener/viewer.
Tanya holds a Bachelor of Journalism from Carleton University, a post-graduate certificate in creative writing from the Humber School for Writers and a photojournalism diploma from Loyalist College. She is currently a candidate in the low-residency MFA program at Maine Media College + Workshops in Rockport, Maine.
Her photographic, multimedia and audio work has been exhibited and screened internationally and in spaces across Toronto, including at Slideluck Potshow and Open Show Toronto, and with PhotoSensitive, Project Re•Vision and Workman Arts. Her first radio doc, “What Happened to Your Face?,” aired on CBC Radio One’s The Doc Project in 2015. She has recently been accepted into the Akin / MOCA studio program.
