Growing up in South Florida, Tara Hunt initially took up painting to capture marine life and tropical flora. Now a resident of Charlotte, NC for twenty-six years, Tara uses oils and alcohol inks to create vibrant naturalism paintings of mountains, and coastal seascapes. Her style is a blend of impressionistic realism and decorative naturalism, using patterns and repetitions to capture the intricate beauty of the natural world. Tara is especially drawn to the energy and movement of waves, which she expresses through energetic brushstrokes and saturated palettes. Tara uses reference photos from her travels, making her works more meaningful. Tara's goal is to communicate a sense of wonder and excitement for the abundance of nature.
