I have been gifted with the means to express myself creatively to others with joy and love in art.
Ileane Tatar’s interest in art and nature began at an early age where she experimented with various mediums. She is a twenty-one year volunteer at the Chicago Botanic Garden where she works with the design of plant materials.
On a trip to Southern California she studied with, and was influenced by, Chinese masters, who inspired her to paint in the Asian Manner (Sumi-e). This Asian influence blended well from watercolor to painting on silk.
Ileane has exhibited locally, nationally, and internationally. She is a member of the Sumi-e Society of America, Sumi-e Midwest, American Artists of Chinese Brush Painting (Lung Hsiang), and Takasumi-e. Awards include Sarasota Florida Chapter award and Midwest Chapter award.
