Statement
Drawing came naturally to me. Actually one could say it was and is instinctive for me. As a child, art was not something I did when I was bored or just “for fun.” (That’s not to say it wasn’t fun). No, I draw because I have to!

My passion for creating art is fueled by my love for animals and the American West. Inspiration gathered from trips to rodeos, horse stables, and going outdoors in search of wildlife. Bringing nature into the studio is also important to my creative process. I use skulls, fur, teeth, and antlers as further tangible material to study animal anatomy.  

Through this strive for technical realism, the intent of my work runs much deeper—to express the living essence and powerful magnetism of my subjects. I seek the Sublime.” –Tara Radosevich
