Tara is an Interactive Designer and Animator with a passion for creating compelling and engaging work through storytelling and motion. Graduating from the Maryland Institute College of Art Magna Cum Laude, Tara received her Bachelors of Fine Art in Animation with a concentration in Graphic Design. Tara pulls from her background in animated film to bring a strong sense of timing and (when appropriate) a humorous twist to all of her projects. Her experience working in the interactive design industry and as a freelance graphic designer has given Tara the opportunity to work with independent clients, non-profits, and internationally recognized cultural institutions on a variety of projects. These projects include interactive museum installations, educational apps, online games, and more. Whatever the nature of the project, however, she stands firmly behind the simple belief that any story worth telling is best told through art.
When not designing or animating, Tara can be found watching Looney Tunes or listening to bluegrass music, and she has been known to do a mean Katharine Hepburn impersonation.
