About the Artist

Artist Statement

Tara has a beautiful gift for immersing the viewer into a world of Allegorical Surrealism. Her paintings engage us with their dainty tea cups - a symbol of the artists own for “taking time to connect with friends and to be kind to oneself” along with many other Allegorical Symbolism of the artists, such as feathers, top hats, nests and trees.
Each original work of Tara’s tells a story and may even offer a little piece of wisdom that the artist her self has gained along her own path of life.
“I believe that painted images have the power to create a shift within a person, not unlike a song or a well read story, that changes the person from that moment on. It is in this belief that I create the works that are displayed here, in the hope that I can bring warmth, magic and hope to those who love my work... That on some level, the viewer is moved and their faith in this world and their own light is restored and inspired.”
