beauty. For me, Nature is the master puzzle maker; I am a recorder attempting to capture the complexities, spirit and sensuality of her fleeting moments. I want my work to give Nature, as Paul Cezanne said, "the taste of her eternity."

The natural environment has been a second background for Tyler's life and work.  Over the years, the mountains and plains of Colorado, the desert and mountains of El Paso; the prairie around Denton; and the rolling hills, pastures and hard wood forests of Paris, Texas have served as inspiration for her drawings, paintings and ceramics. 

​The artist recently moved to the heart of Texas in the beautiful Hill Country where she has created a spacious, light filled studio. She says that the light and feel of the air reminds her of her early years in Colorado.

The artist's paintings and drawings have been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions in public and private museums and galleries as well as invitational and juried competitions throughout Texas and many other states.  Her works are in private, corporate and educational collections.
