Her work has appeared in over 40 shows, stores and galleries in Canada, and is part of private collections in Canada, the US and Europe.

Facade: The outward appearance that conceals reality
Reality: The state of things as they actually exist
Imagine: Form a mental image of something not actually present
Tara Kelly's body of work contains these 4 themes and principles. By incorporating the real and the imagined, she strives to reveal the truth that lies behind outward appearances. She uses isolation as a design element to place emphasis on her subjects and to convey the emptiness in detachment.
Tara has 2 approaches to her canvases. Loose brushwork creates a bold statement, invoking an immediate visceral response. Using deliberate and methodical application, she depicts subject either as they are seen, or as she imagines them. These techniques, whether used separately or in combination, result in compositions that are both visually impacting and appealing, and invite the viewer to look beyond the picture presented.
“The creative process is always alive for me, whether I feel inspired or not. While inspiration is important, it is more so to create regularly, so I paint every day, even if I have only a limited time frame. I paint to inspire the viewer to look closer at the image presented and sense the implied meaning behind the literal picture. I paint to express my perspective of the things I have done, and the results they have had on my kids and my character.”
