FROM THE STUDIO OF A PERCEPTIVE DREAMER

Raised in a two hundred acre wood in Eastern Iowa, Tara had a childhood full of exploration, nature and appreciation for handcrafted goods. Equipped with basic art supplies and a vintage Singer sewing machine (which made it all the way from elementary school to grad school), Tara fostered her love of creating with her hands. 

Tara's studio is just West of Austin, TX. Working primarily in watercolor and gouache,  illustrating from real life and imagination,  she's inspired by relics, folk art, and nature. Her ingenuity comes from problem solving and inventing, while spending time with her children, husband, and Peek-A-Boo & Kismet (their Boston Terriers).
