About Tara

Hi there! I am Tara Rodden Robinson. I’m an artist and illustrator.

I think of myself as an archaeologist of the soul. Archaeology is the study of history through analysis of artifacts and physical remains. As an archaeologist of the soul, I study my own personal history to understand my past and to form my future.

As a spiritual practice, my art is a means of exploring mystical spirituality while conveying what I find to be holy and sacred in the natural world.

My approach is equal parts intuition and purpose. As a biologist by training, I present natural organisms with biological realism while expressing emotion and narrative through color and subtle anthropomorphism.

I work in acrylics, watercolor, and colored pencil.
