a visit with: Tara Hogan of Ink+Wit

Over the next few months leading up to our November market, Tuesday through Thursday we'll be showcasing one of our 2012 market artists, their work, and a little peek at where they make the magic happen. We hope you'll enjoy this new series, where we'll ask the same questions of each of our makers. 

You'll get to know a little bit about our talented makers and what inspires them, read about their favorite ways to recharge their creativity, and learn what experience has shown them to be an invaluable piece of the puzzle in selling their work. Come November, won't it be great to walk into a room filled with inspiring, familiar faces? We think so, too!

Today we're happy to spend some time with creative powerhouse, and returning Second Storie vendor, Tara Hogan...

a visit with:

- Tara Hogan - 

What first inspired you to create/make what you do now?
My mother was always artistic and nurtured what she saw me creating at a very young age. She's a great artist and writer.

Your advice for someone just starting out
and wanting to sell their work?
Trust yourself and stay true to who you are and your inner voice.

Three things or people who inspire you?
My yoga teacher, Dharma Mttra.
My incredibly skilled carpenter, mechanic, engineer father who endlessly helps under any circumstances. My son, now five months old, who teaches me what's truly important and helps me understand how to finally write a great children's book.

- her work -

Favorite way to take a break/recharge your creative batteries?
A trip to Iceland. But since that's not exactly the fastest "trip," yoga is always my go-to source.
