Tara is a costume designer and makeup artist. She grew up in the suburbs of Chicago where she fell in love with storytelling through art, fantasy novels, tv, and film. 

Starting in High School, Tara took classes at Kosart Atelier where she developed her SFX makeup skills. Throughout college, Tara worked as the lead makeup artist, production designer, and costume designer on many short films at The Second City Film School.


She joined the fashion program at The School of the Art Institute in Chicago and quickly realized that the way to combine her love of storytelling and fashion was through costume design. Since then, she has been focusing on costuming, working on multiple films, and photo shoots since graduating. She currently lives in Los Angeles and is pursuing a MFA in Costume Design at California Institute of the Arts.
