With a professional art career spanning 3 decades, Tarli has exhibited widely throughout Australia in numerous group and solo shows, including the highly successful Land, Hard Land and Paper Scape solo exhibitions.

While Tarli’s art practice covers a range of creative disciplines, she concentrates primarily on painting, drawing and multi-media works with a focus on both landscape and figurative genres. Her work leans toward semi abstract symbolism and representation.

The body of work created for 'My Place' continues to reflect my interest in the regional landscapes of the central and western plains of Victoria, the familiar environments that I have lived, my whole life in. My country, my land, my place has left a powerful and lasting impression on the aesthetics of my work, evident in my interpretations of space and colour and the portrayal of divisions in the landscape and alterations made by man
