You have landed here because you clicked a link after your curiosity was piqued somewhere on the internet about who I am and what I do. Thank you! And yay!

me in the studio

My name is Tara, and I’m an artist, teacher, writer and what I think of as a creative encourager.  :)

I paint in my attic studio by the sea; I write about art and creativity on my blog and in my book, Creative Spark, which guides and supports people to rediscover their creative and artistic gifts, especially if they have fears and doubts about them.

I offer an array of courses, free gifts and blog articles on my website, and for those who like to hear a little more from me and stay updated with new happenings, stories, projects, sales and offers, there are Artnotes.

I know that it takes time to decide whether someone’s work, personality and offerings are for you. With that in mind, I invite you to fill in the form below.

It will give you access to ‘Making Art Your Way’, a free six part email mini course designed to get you started with making art, and also to my Artnotes. These are monthly-ish inbox missives full of art and inspiration, and if you find they are not for you, it’s very easy to change your mind, and no hard feelings. :)

“Just wanted to share with you, the impact of your emails. For the first time in my life, I am really and truly benefitting from reading correspondence from a fellow artist. What you put into words has really been resonating with me. From the visual items to the written word, you’ve really been able to put things that really inspire me, calm me and encourage me to embrace all of the aspects of my creative self.  I really ‘get’  what you are writing about. It just ‘clicks’ for me. Thank you for taking the time to compose and send these wonderful emails. I love the additional links you place at the bottom too. Very thoughtful of you. Keep up the great work. I appreciate you Tara!!”
