Darla Tanaka

Art is a joy and celebration of ideas, feelings, and color. Combining mediums such as acrylic, wood, resin, and metal, I express my ideas of traditional art as well as steampunk and fantasy. I love making not only wall art but also useful items such as trays, jewelry, lanterns, etc. My mind is filled with ideas and color. My goal is to bring these ideas to life in objects others can use and enjoy.

Darla Joy Tanaka spent 22 years in Japan and studied sculpture, doll making, and other arts while there. She also taught high school robotics for many years here in the US. This gives her an unusual combination of traditional design and mechanical perspective. Her art varies from vintage design to gears and dragons, combining color with whimsy.
