About

 

Tarnia is an animal advocate and devoted mum to her three horses and two dogs. She grew up surrounded by pets of every shape and size - horses, dogs, cats, fish, rats, hermit crabs, silkworms, rescued pets and wildlife...

This naturally fuelled her unconditional love of the animal kingdom.

Tarnia combines this with her passion for the arts to create realistic animal portraits with a stylish finish and archival quality.
Empathic in nature, she strives to capture the personality and essence of the subject, bringing the artwork to life. Already committed to some not-for-profit organisations, she is driven to use her artistic licence to bring awareness and funding to philanthropic missions:

    • "Mourning", a heartfelt portrait of a koala donates 20% of proceeds to Koala Rescue Queensland Inc
        • "Drought" is a striking skull portrait donating 10% of proceeds to "Mourning", a heartfelt portrait of a koala donates 20% of proceeds to Australian Drought Relief

          Tarnia is a university graduate with a Bachelor in Biomedical Science (majoring in Chemistry and Biotechnology) and a qualified dental nurse with nine years clinical experience.
          Upon moving to, and calling Brisbane home, she leads a busy life pursuing her passions freelancing as an artist alongside the full time work as a technical field analyst in environmental monitoring.
