Meet the Maker is a new series of features highlighting some of the most amazing makers across the North Shore! We will be featuring a handful of new makers every Monday to hopefully help mitigate the added financial strain that the COVID-19 pandemic has brought to the creative community. Follow along on Instagram and Facebook as well!
Meet Tara White
In your own words… what do you do? Describe the thing(s) you “make/create.”
My mixed media artwork is my passion. I love to use recycled and found objects in unexpected ways. Nature is my biggest inspiration – many of my pieces have animal subjects. I also really enjoy making digital designs, which I have started to make available as prints and on products.

The world is curious — what inspires you to “make/create”?
Emotions are my biggest driver. I feel a certain way and think about it in colors and textures before I start a new piece. Then I’ll come up with the best subject matter to convey those feelings. Very rarely does my work end up the way I first imagined, which is the exciting part.
Roughly how much are you expecting in losses over the next month?
I am still in the beginning of selling artwork – usually only a few pieces a year. I have another full time job that so far has been unaffected, thankfully.
