Tara Good is self-taught artist living in the nation’s capital.

A California native, she received her B.A. from Fordham University in Theater Performance and International/Inter-cultural Studies. After working professionally in New York theater, she received her M.A. from New York University in Performance Studies.

She subsequently received the U.S. State Department’s Critical Language Scholarship two years in a row to study Arabic in Jordan and Oman.

Currently, her day job is lobbying Capitol Hill on behalf of the American wine industry. When she is not painting, she is working on her first novel: a YA retelling of Hansel and Gretel set during the German Reformation.

Artist Statement:

Tara’s work is influenced by the literal and proverbial landscapes of Washington D.C. While social justice often motivates her work, she also explores natural landscapes and the cross-sections therein. She experiments with styles, from naturalism to the abstract, in search of the place between.
