About

Artistic Creations

"I started drawing at the early age of 4, inspired by the deep appreciation for cartoons. This lead to an infatuation with crayola crayons. I felt the need to draw what I saw and what I thought I saw. The harmony I found in the imperfection of cartoon illustrations, as they existed parallel to reality, fueled my imagination. The urge developed into an addiction. I surrender to the continual sudden impulse that compels me to create something. And if I don’t obey, I will feel broken and unaligned. It’s the only time where I feel free to fall into an abyss; where a gravitational force lures me into my creative zone. And in that space is my inner child falling in love with her paint and music. This combination is the sole reason why I do not categorize my work. Being unclassified allows me to be open and genuinely disclose my emotions. For me, all art is above labels."

Tarra Lu is a Haitian-American artist and certified Reiki practitioner currently living in Charlotte, NC. Having lived a very nomadic lifestyle, she has had a rich life filled to the brim with myriad ways of living. It is these influences that feed the eccentric soul behind her work.

Tarra’s paintings explore the female form within the context of emotional vulnerability, wrapped in the bold contrast of a Caribbean-inspired color palette.
Raised by fashionable, flamboyant, intuitive and mysterious women, she has always been drawn to eclectic personalities. As she grew up, she understood how these women had become a part of her, how her artwork exhumes the essence of these women. Understanding this instilled within her a sense of self-love and appreciation, as she loved and appreciated the feminine archetypes. It is this self-love she perpetuates within her art work, because love for self naturally evolves into love for others.

As she branched out and became skilled in other crafts, she inevitably found a way to marry art and fashion. After all, fashion is simply another form of expression, and she has many different sides of herself she wants to express. Tarra figures that she can create many pieces for the multitude of personalities she had grown to know and love throughout her childhood. With her wearable pieces, she hopes to validate and allow other women to express themselves as they are. Because of the therapeutic value this work holds for her, each piece is infused with Reiki to inspire good energy within the one who wears it.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

All original and custom paintings are final.

Care instructions

Jewelry is composed of titanium medical grade and/or stainless steel. These metals are non-toxic, lead/nickel-free and hypoallergenic, for most people. If you have extreme allergies and can only wear solid gold, I recommend you not purchase for your own personal use. As a general rule for these pieces, avoid wearing your jewelry piece in the shower, when sleeping and when exercising (because of sweat that may build up on the skin). If the glass dome gets foggy, simple clean it with rubbing alcohol. ​
