Tania Still was born in 1976, grew up in North Yorkshire and was mainly educated at Queen Mary’s School, in Thirsk. She attended Newcastle College and Northumbria University before moving to London in 1996 to study at the City and Guilds of London Art School in Kennington, where she completed her diploma and postgraduate studies in Fine Art painting.
In her London studio she now concentrates on painting different breeds of hounds, to convey the changing attitudes to rural life, with which she is very much concerned. She predominantly concentrates painting Hounds from British Isle packs.
Using photography, she trails the country taking images of various packs at their Kennels or Meets. Her subjects are Foxhounds, Coursing Greyhounds, Beagles, Harriers and Mink Hounds. To create these images Tania uses Oil on Canvas in various sizes, but she always uses a square, as she does not want to give the viewer a preconceived bias towards a landscape or portrait format. Either of these formats would create a definite environment to an image. Continuing her theme that a hound has anonymity within their pack, this lack of bias in using squares is fundamental to her work.
She lives in London with her husband and two children.
