Tahlia's Masks: from theatre to art to publishing.

My masks are your noble self revealed, that secret, wise and powerful self that resides at your core. My hats are designed to help you celebrate that nobility.

I've been making masks since 1980 when I first began making them for Mr Jupiter's Children's Theatre. I used my masks in visual theatre performances with Centrepiece Productions from 1988 to 2003, and I also supplied other theatre groups and still sell sets of latex commedia masks to schools via my website.

But decorative masks are my passion, and as soon as I stopped making masks for visual theatre and performance art works, I began making them for the sheer pleasure of creating something beautiful.

In 2003 when I'd had enough of travelling my show around Australia and New Zealand, I became a high school art teacher. Five years later, a different kind of inspiration hit and I began writing. I left teaching in 2008 and now divide my time between editing books for others, writing my own books and making masks depending on how the inspiration flows.

All the masks are one-only completely original designs. Some may be similar in style, but no two will ever be exactly the same.

Find out about my inspirational metaphysical and speculative fiction at http://tahlianewland.com. Most of my stories are about characters seeking their noble selves., so my artristic vision is the same, just my method of sharing it varies

Hi, I'm Tahlia Newland, I make masquerade masks and papier mache wall masks using traditional Venetian techniques and my own original designs. I think of them all as reflections of aspects of the noble self within us.

I love making them, and I hope you'll enjoy them.
