Meet the Artist - TaraWe hope you like our Meet the Artist Series. This one is about Tara!
Hi all! My name's Tara and I'm a 23 year old local artist born at the Jersey Shore! I first realized I loved art when I was very young - taking art classes and learning about mixing colors and creating new shapes. As I got older, I realized I adored abstract art, the ability to make real life objects into any shapes and colors I wanted, and playing with the idea of 'pushing the norm'.
I went to school for Fine Art and Education at Montclair State University and ended my education at Monmouth University. I received several awards for my work and was sponsored through multiple companies to work in a co-op studio right after college.
I love working at Pinot's Palette because this is exactly what I like to do with my time. Showing people that these acrylic paintings are achievable, fun and exciting ways to show your creativity is such a reward for me as an artist and as an educator. Being able to teach children and adults the same lesson while having a blast is what makes working at Pinot's less of a job and more of a hobby!
