Biography

Tonya Engel

Tonya Engel was born in Houston, Texas and travelled extensively in the US and Europe before settling down in her studio in Brooklyn, NY. Tonya Engel is a self-taught painter. After a short-lived exploration in her earlier career with abstract painting, she began to totally concentrate on figurative form mixed with the emotion and expressionistic boldness that makes her works resolutely contemporary.
