Tara Leaver

Originally from London, Tara Leaver is an artist and teacher living by the sea in Cornwall, UK. Tara is happiest near - or preferably in - the sea, where she swims as often as she can. She immerses herself in the multi-sensory experience of it, taking photos underwater, looking and feeling into the abundance of life above and below the waves. Back in the studio, she weaves together elements from the photos, memories, and gathered seaweed, to distill those experiences into paintings.
