About BC Art Escapes

Tara’s childhood escape every Canadian summer was the cozy local library. There, she would while away the hours with giant stacks of books and magazines, dreaming of life’s possibilities while inhaling the delicious scents of words written on paper. And when it wasn’t too cold, she loved exploring through the trees and trails surrounding her home.

After years in outside sales, Tara transitioned into Business Blog Writing and Editing, based on Vancouver Island and the Okanagan, BC, regions. Writing credits may be found on the ‘Links to Work’ page.

Tara previously published three Children’s eBooks: Ellie Captures a Star, Ellie Walks on the Moon, and Ellie Makes Sunshine. She is also a published poet.

Escapism, in addition to trying new things, has been a lifestyle choice, but not only through books, writing, creating, and travel. Tara counts driving a Canadian army tank, riding in the jump seat of a Griffin helicopter, catamaraning over the Caribbean Sea, driving a scooter through Red Canyon National Conservation Area outside of Las Vegas, and paragliding off a perfectly good mountain as her top adventures so far.

Spending her life exploring the great outdoors of British Columbia, Tara has taken thousands of iPhone photos and is excited to share her best shots through her new business BC Art Escapes. After taking acrylic, watercolour, and photography classes, she can also share her love of art, endlessly inspired by the beauty of nature. In addition to nature photography and gardening, her passion lies in working with abstract and expressionist mixed media.

Tara also believes in giving back and supports the BCSPCA, Nature Conservancy Canada, local food banks, and the amazing international non-profit KIVA.

BC Art Escapes values sustainability, the slow art movement (the antithesis of mass-produced art), and incorporates ecofriendly materials whenever possible. Tara’s hope is to leave something beautiful and meaningful behind in the world. She believes nature is LIFE! She can still be found reading voraciously, happily inhaling the woodsy aroma of books and working on creating additional artwork for sale at her BC Art Escapes Etsy shop.
