Dutch still life and culinary paintings using classical technique, by London based artist Tanja Möderscheim

Tanja Möderscheim is a Dutch painter based in London. She paints culinary and still life paintings using techniques common in 17th-Century Holland. Her close attention to detail and anatomy in her Dutch still life paintings is driven by her background in science and is also a nod to the renewed interest in taxonomy during the Dutch Golden Age.

She exhibits regularly in between commissions and working on projects. One such project celebrates culinary heritage and local food produce. For this project she collaborated with the BBC Food and Farming Awards (2016) and currently works with additional food producers to bring out the best of their business in paint. These paintings will be exhibited together to celebrate artisan producers and their good, local food.

Tanja also teaches still life painting workshops in Old Isleworth.


Tanja is currently working on commissions for clients in the UK, paintings for the Reading Art Fair, and a large painting for the Art Matakana Gallery, New Zealand. She is planning her next still life painting course (June/July 2017)
