Tara McCarthy is an artist from Kilgarvan co. kerry. A mother of five, Tara draws much of her inspiration from her children, and the beautiful landscape surrounding her in Kenmare, Kilgarvan, and Killarney.
A colourful mix of portraiture , landscapes and street scenes, Tara's work successfully portrays the personality of her subjects, as even grey streets are brought to life in vivid colours.
Tara's impasto technique, building up in layers of paste and acrylics , effectively adds dimension and interest to her work. Tara also runs a
children's painting class - " The canvas club", which is the home of
many aspiring young artists.
