Tara Jane grew up in a semi-nomadic life, where her family moved frequently as a child. She spent her formative years living up and down the west coast, developing a lifelong love of nature. These days, the award-winning illustrator and nature enthusiast lives in Denver, CO with her husband and two cats. Instead of moving all the time, she likes to channel that drive to explore the world around her through shorter, less permanent trips.


Depicting flora and fauna using watercolor and gouache (and sometimes ink), Tara explores the intersection of animals, nature, and the fantastic. She creates sharp and naturalistic art that draws you in.
