Meet Tatiana Roulin of Tatiana Roulin Fine Art in Sharon

Today we’d like to introduce you to Tatiana Roulin.

Tatiana, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I started my career as a full time artist in 2001 combining it with being a devoted mom. For the past 17 years I’ve successfully worked with many local, regional, out of state and abroad art galleries and art organizations. In addition to my work with commercial galleries my art helped to raise money for different causes in many different art and non-art organizations including American Veterans, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, Diabetes Society, Leukemia Society, Rare Disease United Foundation, and Red Hat Society to name just a few. I got to where I am today through hard work.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
I really doubt that anyone ever had a smooth road in this life. The career of a professional artist is a very tough one in general so my road was not smooth at all with many ups and downs. I went through different periods of my career but I am glad that the love for art has granted me the courage and strength to keep on going. I prefer to work with people who are professionals and have a respectful attitude. Unfortunately in my art career I’ve met many people who are quite the opposite so currently I am pretty selective about who I would like to work with.

Tatiana Roulin Fine Art – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
I am a full time representational artist working both in my home studio and outdoors. I actively exhibit my work around and I run my art shows as often as I can, using every opportunity I can get. As a mother I have to balance life with my work so I paint things that inspire me and have a connection to my life.

I specialize in representational painting and drawing, working from life and en plein air. I mainly work with oil and pastel but I am proficient in other mediums as well. I pay a great deal of attention to the overall atmosphere and details so usually no matter what size I work on, it takes time to achieve the desired result. My paintings range in size from 4″x4″ to 18″x24″ and my subject matter includes landscape, still life, portrait, and pet portrait. I open to any type of commission work as well.

I think I could be proud of being able to stay active as an artist for more than 15 years and that my work has helped a wide array of human service and cultural organizations around the country. Nothing can be a greater reward than knowing that what you do can help others, no matter if it’s about monetary or spiritual help. As to what sets me apart from others, it would be my own unique vision and my own life experience that is reflected partially in my work.

What is “success” or “successful” for you?
To me personally success is when there are people who love and appreciate my paintings enough to hang them in their homes and see them every day. It’s the best reward you ever can dream of for your work. Someone said that, “what we have done for ourselves alone dies with us. What we have done for others and the world remains and is immortal.” I don’t create art for myself I do it for people around me, I believe that what I create can make people feel better in every way as much as it makes me feel good when I’m creating my paintings. People often find that my paintings “can evoke feelings of calm happiness,” “bring back good memories”, “light up the room,” “brighten up their daily life” and “enable to stop and appreciate a view of everyday things” or “places they ever visited”. I have a Testimonials page (https://troulin.com/testimonials/) on my website where you can read more.
