If I had a motto in life it would be...

Thinking is only one step away from doing and what you do is who you are.

Wanaree Tanner's work

During the next decade I hope to...

  • teach and travel
  • complete and publish my copper metal clay book
  • spend lots of time working on my Nouveau Relic series
  • complete and publish "Inspired by Travels" metal clay project book

Things I want to do before I die are...

  • visit Bhutan
  • experience Machu Picchu
  • eat my way through Europe… and Asia…

What I like about being involved with MCSJ

Contributing to the curriculum of such a professional and established school is an exciting honor. I look forward to watching the school continue to spread knowledge to an eager art community for many years to come.
