Tara Reed has been doodling, painting and creating since she could hold a crayon! An east coast girl by birth, Tara is a northwest girl by choice. She creates from her home studio in Portland, Oregon.
Her favorite gifts as a child were new art supplies. In 2001 she took a crafty hobby and turned it into an artistic career. She calls herself "an artist by passion and not education."
Tara believes that a happy life is made up of the little happy moments you can find if you are looking for them. She also thinks that laughter really is the best medicine and she strives to create art that helps add to the happy in people’s lives.
The art she creates clearly shows her fun and quick-witted sense of humor. Often creating by hand using watercolor paints, Tara finished off her work by uses digital editing techniques to create delightful collections of images, borders and patterns.
CheckAdvantage is excited to present the artwork of Tara Reed on personal checks, address labels and checkbook covers as part of our Licensed Artist Series.
