Tara Leaver



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!

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 I offer an array of online courses devoted to helping you uncover, explore, and develop your unique and true self expression through art.

Twice a month I send out Artnotes, which are the email equivalent of a letter from one artist {me} to another {you}. They’re full of thought provoking ideas, behind the scenes stories about being an artist {and how to fully embrace that}, and of course first dibs on offers and sales, including my annual pay-what-you-like Secret Sale.

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 in a way that suits you and your lifestyle, and also to my Artnotes. If you find they are not for you, it’s very easy to change your mind, and no hard feelings. :)

“I love getting your newsletter. I enjoy reading it so much, mainly because it’s great fun to learn about how another artist is navigating her world. I like all the art tips too. Though I think the biggest draw is the energy behind it. You seem to simply want to help and nurture and empathize and share your experience. It’s a breath of fresh air and I appreciate you for it.”
