Tara enjoys creating art for board books, picture books, chapter books, and graphic novels. She is drawn to stories with humor and heart and is particularly fond of illustrating unicorns, dragons, and ghosts. Tara is passionate about body positivity, female empowerment and cultivating a belonging culture vs. a fitting in culture. When not illustrating, Tara can be found refining her playdoh skills with her daughters, consuming podcasts and audio books, geeking out over Human Design, or jogging. It is her dream to find a way to do all of these things at once . . . one day. She can rarely be found sleeping and I am okay with that.
