Tara's bio:
Tara has had a passion for art since she was a child coloring in
her oversize coloring books and filling reams of green and white striped paper with artwork that her father would bring home from work. Today, she creates whimsical illustrative art using various mediums. Her preferred mediums are graphite, colored pencils and watercolor. She is an art instructor, a commissioned artist, and is actively pursuing a career in children’s book illustration. She wants to be “part of the reason a child turns the page and picks a book from the shelf".  
Tara is a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers Illustrators, Emmaus Art Commission, Lehigh Art Alliance, and the Colored Pencil Society. She is an instructor through East Penn School District's Continued Education Program and The Creative Learning Lab, as well as a private art instructor.

Tara’s art has been described as whimsical art that everyone can enjoy. Tara is a published artist in the Ann Kullberg Colored Pencil Hidden Treasures, Vol IV and has been quoted in Colored Pencil Magazine. Her art work has been shared on social media by Ampersand and Daniel Smith. She has participated in numerous juried shows. Recently she received an Honorable Mention for her piece, “The Moments That Matter”, in the 11th Annual Morning Call Juried Show at The Baum School of Art in Allentown. This piece will also be featured in Allentown’s beautification project.
Tara is constantly striving to learn and grow as an artist. She is also a firm believer in artists supporting artists. Tara finds helping others find their artistic voice highly inspiring. When not working or teaching, she can be found at home with her family. You can view her work at: www.imaginationcreationsbytms.com.
