The artist behind the artwork
"Art is not what you see but what you make others see."
- Edgar Dagas
One of my favourite quotes. Everyone's experience with art is unique and personal, so it's a very special privilege for me to unlock peoples feelings in this way.
Inspiration & Style
Tara's been inspired by animals all her life; both artistically and generally. They are often the muses for her detailed pen and ink renderings, focused on bringing their emotions to the forefront. This style emerged for her during post-concussion in 2015. Her style has a unique way of depicting texture and allows the focus to remain on the animal's gaze by often omitting cluttering aspects such as colour or background.
Art came naturally and at a young age for Tara; her desire to paint and draw was ferocious and consistent. She attended specialized arts programs throughout most of her schooling and gained exposure to many techniques and various media, while obtaining a four year education in art history.
