About TJ

TJ Walton has lived and painted fulltime in Provincetown since 1989.

TJ began painting at an early age in Newburyport, Massachusetts and credits her self reliance as being the creative force in her life.

Walton has garnered a following and strong reputation for being at the forefront of a new movement of self-taught artists who prefer to learn by trial and error – self guided rather than be influenced by a “school of art.”

 

To some it is of no surprise that Walton is going in this direction.  Provincetown has played host and home to some of the most famous modernists in history, including Hans Hoffman, Pat and Nano de Groot and Motherwell, to name just a few.  Maybe their ghosts have found host in her abilities or perhaps she is simply ahead of the resurging zeitgeist of modernism.  When your work gets howled at from a passenger in a moving car on a cold January night, you can take warmth in knowing you have driven a knife through the heart of the past, including comfortable paintings, even if those paintings are your own.
