Tanya is a 21 year old Communication Design and Illustration student. Tanya experiments with expressing herself through her art. She loves sharing her work and plans to become a full time illustrator. Tanya designed the Dekko blanket as something to experience. As she describes it:

“Dekko (noun), meaning ‘a quick look or glance’. I wanted to create something to look at, to catch the eye, maybe for just a brief second, or maybe for a bit longer. I wanted to create a pattern that is unique and interesting in every part. One line leading the eye to another. It then becomes an experience, and I hope you have the best experience with this blanket!”
