About the Artist

Tara Kemp is a creature of the Northwest. Through her paintings she reflects on her extraordinary life in Oregon; the people and places she encounters.

“My painting craft is something of an act of preservation and in a way an act of rebellion to bring to the viewers attention to the beauty of our endangered natural world.”

She paints in a Contemporary Impressionist style, what she calls “Abstract Realism” - realistic from a distance, yet abounding with abstract shapes and brush strokes upon closer inspection.

Tara is a member of The Oil Painters of America and The American Impressionist Society.
