Tanya Momi is an inspirational artist with a diverse portfolio spanning several categories: cubism, figurative, abstract, social realism, and spiritual art. Her paintings explore mental health issues and the expression of human suffering.
Tanya’s rich life experiences greatly influence her work. Tanya was born in India and graduated with a Bachelor in Fine Arts from Chandigarh in 1982. Later she married and moved to the United States, and eventually established a salon business in Silicon Valley in 1989. After nine and a half years of an abusive marriage, Tanya divorced her ex-husband and never looked back. Busy raising her two kids as a single mother while running her business, she didn’t start painting until 22 years later. Tanya was encouraged by close friends to rekindle her love for painting again. Despite the late start, she had the opportunity to meet many people from different walks of life through her salon business which helped spark her second career. Being an artist has allowed Tanya to find herself through her artwork. Her painful journey became her inspiration. 
One of the very first series Tanya worked on was about the pain and suffering of a single, divorced woman. The paintings appended to this series include: When Friends Turn Their Backs, Wounded, Beaten but not Broken, and Stop the Pain. Empathetic to the suffering of women and people all around the world, Tanya hopes her paintings can bring comfort to those in similar situations. Her more recent Women Empowerment series gives an artistic perspective of women’s freedom and the creation of a new future for women. Notable paintings in this series include: Independence Day and Vision of the Future, I Am My Mother’s Daughter, Women Don’t Go Back, and Our Abortion Rights. As an artist, Tanya hopes she can encourage women and inspire others with her art.
Among her many achievements, Tanya spoke at the White House about women’s empowerment and leadership. Her art shows have left footprints in India, Beverly Hills, Toronto, London, Hong Kong, Munich, Vienna, Triton Museum, NUMU Museum, Portola Valley, Los Altos, and other local groups.
