Tara has a beautiful gift for immersing the viewer into a world of simplicity and harmony. Her paintings engage us with their strength of character combined with a subtle, sometimes even raw, colour palette. Each original work evokes a sense of enduring and self-contained innocence and contentment. Works range in theme from childhood play to a deeper adult intuitiveness, the artist knowing that these characteristics of the human spirit are both one and the same, if not a stepping stone to each other,

Tara's works present a subdued colour palette to allow the central figure to hold the power within a piece. This allows for both a strength of presence as well as space for the viewer to connect with, and place themselves within, the feeling of the moment presented through each piece.
