One thing we hear from customers over and over again is how much they love our prints. While we create a lot of prints "in-house" the favorite part of our job is to collaborate with other artists whose work we admire and find inspirational. The attention to detail our artists provides is exceptional and we take such pleasure in turning these amazing prints into styles that we think our Millie customers will enjoy and pass along.
Tara grew up on family farmland in rural Northern California surrounded by the redwood forest, open meadows, and the melodic sounds of birds singing. She has always had a love for nature, and it is one of her biggest inspirations. As a child, she loved to pick wildflowers, forage for blackberries, and admire wild mushrooms beneath the redwood trees.
In addition to her love of nature, Tara is inspired by folk art, antique textiles, mid century design and her family. She loves to paint everything floral, draw charming characters and explore color. Her illustrations are found on fabric, apparel, games, home and garden decor, and a variety of paper goods. We are honored to be among her many clients.
