Lazy Bones Photography- Artist feature and Giveaway!




About Tara Sullivan Garvin:

How long have you been creating art?

I've been creating art for as long as I can remember. I have very vivid memories of art class in elementary school and of drawing pictures on my closet door when I was five and trying to blame it on someone else despite the fact that I'm an only child.



What inspires you?

I haven't quite figured out what triggers my bursts of inspiration. Generally they seem to come out of nowhere. Although I will say that if I visit a good art museum I usually come home pretty inspired.


How long have you been interested in photography?

I played around with cameras all my life but I fell in love with photography in high school. Digital photography certainly has it's huge advantages but I very much miss working in a darkroom and I hope to build myself one in the future.

What type of camera do you use?

I use a canon xsi, it's not the best camera on the market but it suits me just fine.


How long have you been painting?

That's kind of a funny question because the answer is “a few months”. I decided that I wanted to start making collages and discovered through that process that I really enjoyed the painting aspect of it. Since then I've been doing at least one or two paintings a week.

What types of paint/materials do you use?

I generally stick to acrylics on either canvas or watercolor paper. I also do collages with found objects, vintage book pages, buttons, keys, tiny gears, ect...


Did you attend college/art school/ classes anything that would be relevant to your art?

I am for the most part self taught. Aside from three wonderful years of high school photography classes everything else has been through books or experimentation.


Now for the GIVEAWAY!!


Tara has offered one reader any 1 print or painting from her Etsy shop ($30 or less)
