T’Alyne studied printmaking and foundry at Arizona State University, where she graduated with an MFA in 2000. She has since built an impressive resume as a visiting artist and artist in residence both in Europe and in the U.S. and feels this experience has been a defining influence on her art practice. She has had residencies at Camac Centre D’Art, Marnay-sur-Seine, Fourwinds Atelier, Aurielle France, Virginia Center of Creative Arts, Amherst VA, Vermont Studio Center, Johnson VT, and the Webb School, Knoxville, TN. Her work is held in collections nationally and internationally by museums, corporations, and private art patrons.
Her abstract works, which are comprised of prints and paintings, are meant to capture the temperament of her surroundings and to reflect the ever-changing environment. She has been influenced by Rothko, Diebenkorn, Laura Owen, Joan Mitchell and the French Surrealists.
T’Alyne views her artistic mission in part is a social one. She values the establishment of personal connections and hopes to be instrumental in building awareness of the importance of the environment to society and culture through her interactions with the public at all levels of art awareness.
Through my work as an artist, I want to establish personal connections and be a part of the wave of collective consciousness implementing awareness. Building up our inventory of experiences that support the value of creativity and cultural heritage to the lives of citizens is key.
