Los Angeles based designer Tana March has been setting trends since 1993 with her creative environmental do-it-yourself projects and philosophy: "We already have everything we need. We just need to find creative ways to use it."
Tana began her career as a self taught artist and furniture designer with the opening of her company FEED Functional Art Designs. FEED's focus has ranged from custom furnishings and lighting made from found, unconventional and recyclable objects to faux finishes, decorative painting and murals. Her reputation garnered a contract from the infamous Shabby Chic, Inc. to reinvent their signature painted finish to revive a struggling line of wooden home furnishings.
In July of 2000, Tana teamed up with top developers from Microsoft, Corbis and Starwave to create TanasHabitat.com, a do-it-yourself lifestyle website for Generations X & Y. Gaining immediate attention, Tana soon began appearing as a guest designer on HGTV's Awesome Interiors. Tana then partnered with publishing giant Primedia's TEEN Magazine to bring DIY advice to Teens. The first column of its kind, Tana's Su Casa set the pace for other teen magazines to follow.
Tana is currently Editor-In-Chief of TanasHabitat.com, DIY Editor-At-Large for TEEN Magazine, TEEN Beat Magazine and TEENMag.com and contributes regularly to Seventeen.com. Her designs and philosophy have been featured in publications ranging from The Washington Post, Entrepreneur, US News and World Report and the Nikkei Business Associť and her advice and opinions are featured frequently in periodicals throughout North America, Japan and Europe.
In the summer of 2002, Tana joined forces with Los Angeles based artist and designer Scott Acord. Most recently they have expanded their readership through a nationally syndicated newspaper column based on their website. They are also currently hard at work on their first book.
In her spare time, Tana likes to play golf, cook for friends, test drive new cars and eat cheese.
