Tara was born in London, raised in Ireland and now lives in the South of England, where she works from her studio, close to the South Downs. Her work is greatly influenced by the beautiful scenery surrounding her.
“I love the idea of using a yarn, that has not travelled for miles. For my collections, my aim is to create woven pieces that are not only functional but allow me to tell a story and raise awareness of some of the excellent natural and sustainable resources we have available locally. As a result, I endeavour to use British Wool in all my collections”
The scholarship has enabled Tara to study a part time Masters in Textiles at the University for the Creative Arts in Farnham. Tara’s work has been featured in magazines and her 2013 collection was awarded the prestigious Sanderson Award at New Designers in London. She dyes and hand weaves all her own pieces, ensuring her customers get a product that is truly unique. Her commissions to date, have included wall hangings, cushions, throws and scarves for both men and women. Tara is looking forward to carrying on her freelance work and learning about new opportunities that she can become involved in
