Previous portrait example by Tara Hardy
Digital Vintage Collage
A unique combination of collage and mixed media techniques.
Tara studied fine arts, illustration and graphic design and incorporates these many facets in all of her work. The result is a beautiful concoction of styles and flavours uniquely her own.
She describes herself as an eternal explorer with an interest in vintage items that keeps her love affair with collage ongoing. She is able to draw from this passion and infuse it in the portraits she creates.
Using her intuition and sensitivity to create, she has won numerous and awards and has been recognized by many publications. You can find her regularly published in The Globe and Mail, The New Yorker and other publications.
The creative process for Tara Hardy isn’t necessarily restricted to the timeframe of a project. A constant process of gathering visual ephemera is always adding to her personal library of marks and textures ready to use.
When it comes to working on one particular image, she finds inspiration in the photo itself, the character, and general essence of the person.
The making stage of her work is a time-consuming adding of various digital and hand-made layers. This is where Tara feels she really builds up the visual narrative and overall story that she wants to tell.
