Tis combines an exhibition practice of installations and sculpture with part time freelance arts management and teaching. She operates from the premise that ideas expressed creatively can explore and renew our connections with the world around us. Being a conceptual artist Tis uses different and unusual combinations of materials to convey an idea. She has been involved in numerous group exhibitions including the ‘The Colour of Saffron’ an exhibition in response to a residency in New Delhi, India and the 2008 Palmer Biennial. She was selected for the 2005 Helpmann Academy Graduate Art Exhibition and The Waterhouse Natural History Prize.
