Ty has exhibited a prolific capacity in creating art. Whether she is making 50 sketches in a notebook, writing a novel, choreographing dance or writing songs, the muse seems to flow effortlessly. She is quiet and reserved, yet decisive and clear and weaves truth with uncanny observations, tempered with emotional sensitivity. Her debut CD “Standing On My Head” is a poetic journal recounting intimate revelations about love, life and relationships. Each song, performed with solo guitar and voice, reveals a world rich in metaphor, stark with simplicity and directness. Ty has headlined her own concerts, including appearances at the Old Town Center for the Arts and the Tempe Center for the Arts, and has opened for Arizona legends Walt Richardson and Big Pete Pearson. She has toured the past two summers with four-time Grammy Finalist William Eaton, violinist Allen Ames, and flutist Claudia Tulip, throughout the Southwest. Ty spent four years playing music weekly at L'Auberge de Sedona in Arizona.
Ty has collaborated with many artists and has appeared in published works, including Michel F. Sarda's "Flying Colors: A Visual Homage", a tribute to Patsy "Sky Line" Lowry's hand-painted silks and decorative head pieces; and Michel F. Sarda's "Mind & Eye: The Paintings of John Henry Waddell".
Ty's latest artistic exploration is in the air. Ty began studying aerial dance in Boulder, Colorado with Frequent Flyers after being inspired and swept away with the fantastical world of Cirque du Soleil. Ty is currently integrating her many passions into multimedia performance pieces. She specializes in aerial silks, and also explores movement on low-flying trapeze, lyra, and invented apparatus. The incorporation of aerial dance has added an exciting dimension, taking her art off the ground.
