Taisha was born in Australia to New Zealand parents, where she grew up from two onwards. She trained in both classical and modern dance for ten years working with pre-eminent New Zealand dancers and schools and receiving notable awards. From eighteen to the present Tai-sha has explored a plethora of subject matter from studying Anatomy at the Auckland Medical School Anatomy Museum, to working with the likes of Sol Le Witt and Jessica Stocklholder as a Masters student at Yale. She has developed an emblematic personal style; ranging from Con-ceptual Linear sculpture both outdoors and in - to the dream-like landscape occupied by a sin-gle white flag, apparently blowing in the wind for her Landmarks paintings.
Notable exhibitions include "Artists Play House," at the Stamford Museum, her three massive black and gold painted picture frames that were painted over existing cornices of the Auckland War Memorial Museum wall. "Landmarks," her first solo exhibition in New York City at Saatchi & Saatchi Headquarters and moving image, "Vignettes," included at Bolognanno, Italy curated by Philippe de Boucaud, Paris. Her works have been reviewed by Dominick Lombardi for the New York Times, John Daly - Peoples for The New Zealand Business review and "Landmarks," her so-lo debut at the Silvermine Guild Galleries, New Canaan, Connecticut reviewed by Lisa Paul Streitfeld For the Stamford Advocate.
Currently the artist lives on Long Island, New York with her seven year old son and continues to produce her works from her Brooklyn studio.
