TARA CASSIDY is an artist based in West Auckland, New Zealand.
She works primarily with pencils, depicting native species. She attributes her choice of artistic subjects to the freedom she had growing up as a "Westie", spending much of her time climbing neighbourhood trees, rifling through her parents’ garden and getting to know the local animals and plants. This curiosity about nature and the outdoors continued into young adulthood and has led Tara to pursue further study in the field of science. She eventually found this to be unfulfilling, and instead completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts programme at Whitecliffe College of Arts and Design, majoring in Fine Arts.
Tara now continues to be inspired by the wildlife of Aotearoa and incorporates this into each of her drawings.
