Tara Lilly grew up on family farmland in rural Northern California playing in the redwood forest. She now lives in Portland, Oregon with her husband Charles and daughter June.
Her whimsical illustrations are found on fabric, children's products, home and garden decor, and a variety of paper goods. She is the grand prize winner of the 2014 Lilla Rogers Global Talent Search and is represented by Lilla Rogers Studio.
Tara is inspired by old picture books, folk art, primitive art, and patterns in nature. Her art is filled with hand-made textures, fresh colors, fun florals, and charming characters.
