tani crotty banyo brisbane gympie whats your project this is gaylia lee nundah photographer

Tani grew up in Gympie with no television, and is raising her 4 kids without television. What is ironic is that until earlier this year, Tani was a television producer. Being without screens is a way of cultivating creativity and keeping family close. This family roam free in a heavenly backyard with sunflowers, chickens, dogs, bare feet and each other.

Despite growing up with no screens, cameras or family photos on the wall, Tani is a gifted photographer. She is bringing art and community together with her Over the Fence Project aimed at deepening the connection of locals and bringing back the ‘village’. She does this in her own unique whimsical style, making poetry out of the everyday.

Tani is also the face behind Just 2 Hands. Taught to weave by her mum using the cats claw creeper around their creek, she finds joy teaching others how to turn natural, found materials into something beautiful and practical. She says that everyone is creative and all you need is ‘just two hands’.

Reach out to Tani at Over the Fence Project to be a part of this dreamy view of our community.

You can book Tani for small group weaving classes at Just 2 Hands.
