Meet Tara Anderson
Tara currently resides in Wilberforce, Ohio with her husband, three kids, three cats and two dogs. She was honored to attend the Governor’s School for the Arts in Kentucky in the '90s, moved to Ohio, and eventually graduated with a BFA in Painting from Ohio University. While she occasionally paints large-scale signs for local businesses, most of her current work is focused on wheel-thrown ceramic sculpture and jewelry made in the basement studio in her home.
Her work was featured in the Spring 2015 Issue of Reverie Fair Magazine. More recently, she showed in the 2016 Christmas Gift Gallery at the Dayton Visual Arts Center. She regularly participates as a vendor in local Ohio events such as the Yellow Springs Street Fair and Art on the Lawn.
Never at a loss for ideas, her work is inspired by her children, nature, math, steampunk, goth, punk, language, literature, industry, music and the desire to create a beautiful, useful pot in a style that has never been seen before.
