Tara has been creating things for as long as she could hold a crayon, pencil, or paintbrush. She remembers falling in love with sewing in the 7th grade when her friend’s mom taught them how to make wrap-around skirts! (Remember them??) She loves to sew for the home and began quilting in the 90s when her son was born. Her motto is, “Why buy something if you can make it?”
Since 2004, Tara has licensed her watercolors for a myriad of products sold online and in stores worldwide - from garden flags to coffee mugs, wall art to dishes and of course - fabric. Creating patterns, like those that grace bolts of fabric featuring her art, is one of her favorite things to do. Tara creates from her home studio in Portland, Oregon.
