Tara Kraft is an artist and illustrator newly based in Seattle. She is inspired by the mesmerizing forms of geology and by the mysterious spaces (both natural and urban) overlooked by human curation. In her work she chooses to relinquish precise control in favor of expressing a chaotic beauty most suited to the natural forms she studies. Tara loves paint and above all sees her work as a collaboration with this endlessly alluring material, often combining traditional media with new software and fabrication tools to create surprising imagery. When not painting rocks and rocky landscapes, Tara likes to use her artistic voice to support social justice causes and does illustration and graphic work for community organizations on a volunteer or reduced rate basis. She is available for collaborations and commissions.
