Tiana Jefferies is a queer, Meanjin based artist using casting, digital modelling, projection, and installation processes to offer a posthuman perspective of materiality and relationality. Her interdisciplinary practice aims to engage with the visceral forces and feelings provoked by the current ecological crisis. Jefferies is motivated by considering the inter-relationality of what could be described as a queer ecology and her place in it. She desires to promote the vibrancy of relationships between art objects and audiences and the subtle but potent affective capacities that mediate these encounters. 

Upon completing a Master of Philosophy in Experimental Creative Practice at the Queensland University of Technology, Jefferies received the Dorothy Birt Memorial Prize for experimental practice. Jefferies has exhibited at Outer Space, MetroArts, The Walls Artspace, and various group exhibitions throughout South East Queensland.
