Tara White's Profile

About

From creative writing to drawings, paintings and crafts, Tara has been able to express herself in many unique ways. In middle school and high school, art class was a place for her to escape the drama and stress of life as a young adult and teenager. It was in her high school art classes that Tara truly began to realize her talents. She began to explore various media including graphite, chalk, charcoal and pastels. Her drawings were true-to-life pieces drawn from observation of people, animals and still-life.

During her senior year, she learned of a scholarship to the local art college, Montserrat College of Art. This was a full tuition scholarship for a graduate of Beverly High School, who excelled in art as well as academia. Tara applied for the scholarship with the help of her teacher and was awarded full tuition to attend Montserrat College of Art…

At Montserrat, Tara received formal training in objective drawing using various media, painting, two-dimensional design principles, three-dimensional design, graphic design, life drawing from models and modeling from the human form. She also studied examples of art and architecture from different cultures and historical period.

After completing the foundation training program in 2002, Tara realized that she wanted a career in biology. She transferred to Salem State College and in 2006 graduated magna cum laude with a B.S. in Biology, and minors in Art and Chemistry.

While her career path is science-related, Tara plans to continue her artwork on the side, both for fun and for business. She would certainly love to transition from a casual Etsy seller to a full-time artist eventually!
