With a move from the Bay of Plenty to Lake Tekapo in 2005, Tj revelled in the beauty of the Mackenzie. A desire to portray the natural landforms, colours and shapes as works of art recently led to a shift away from the computer and onto canvas – and she is now taking pleasure from dirty hands once again.
Working in oils, she is exploring a more abstract genre and a desire to head in this direction using more colour, form and texture. Although a rock painting will keep turning up from time to time.
Tj is an outdoor enthusiast - tramping, mountain biking, running, kayaking, track building.
