Tiarma was educated in the Bandung Institute of Technology (ITB) in Textile Design, Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) in Fashion Design & Master in Fashion & Textile Design @University of Borås, Sweden. She has brought up pink plastics & synthetic fur to highlight the fickleness, volatility & falsehood that permeate our dearly held beliefs, influences & lifestyles. Through her bold conceptual approaches to fashion art & pop culture, Tiarma has explored themes such as love & lust, foreign influences on Indonesian culture. Her artwork uses pink as the main color, because the color is very girly, kitsch, synthetic. She has worked quite consistently with pink since the beginning of her career as a fashion artist in 1998. It has been her signature to use this brilliant color in her artwork. She uses this color to give an eccentric sensation for her creation.
