"Tanya was the perfect mentor for me! I loved her style and the way she used texture in her designs and wanted to take my PS skills up a notch so hired her to help me in one on one sessions. She is so knowledgeable and explained everything in a way that made it easy to understand. The real examples she demonstrated were invaluable. Working with Tanya was one of the best decisions I have made to improve my skills and pattern designs!!" - Kris Hackl
