Originally from London, Tara Leaver is an artist and online course teacher living by the sea in Cornwall, UK. After completing a Foundation Diploma in London in her early twenties, there was a pause in her creative life while she lived with, and subsequently recovered from, long term clinical depression, and spent 6 years teaching in a Montessori school.
As part of her recovery, she returned to painting in 2008, embarking on a period of study and development, both formally and privately. She has exhibited in galleries in Sussex and Cornwall, and her work is owned by private collectors around the world.
From 2013 her online teaching work has evolved as a result of exploring art as a means of self discovery and truthful self expression. Having these two strands to her work - her own practice and the courses she offers - brings a rich diversity to her life as an artist.
