Tara  Higgins

Tara Higgins has a full background in the arts. She has studied painting in Oxford, England; Venice, Italy; Amsterdam, Holland; and Worcester, Massachusetts, USA.
At Clark University in the States she received her BA in theatre set design and scenic painting. She has had the privilege to study under K.B Hancock, a world-renowned landscape painter and is currently thriving in a mentorship with the reputed Canadian artist Angela Morgan.
Tara now resides in BC and is strongly connected to the natural world around her; this connection is reflected deeply in her work. She draws out the trees from the woods and through bold brush strokes and an intuitive sense of colour her paintings become striking impressions of iconic Canadian Landscapes.
Tara Higgins’ work has appeared internationally in magazines, newspapers and television and is hung in private and corporate collections across the globe.

Tara Higgins Statement

Artist Statement
I have painted in some form or another all of my life. It is a process where I
feel most at home and where my curiosity is always piqued. In each painting I explore the evocation of mood through texture and colour. With blatant overlapping strokes and under mixed colours I aim to reflect the unrefined, richly textured landscape that is my backyard.
