Tara Leaver

T

he immersive, multi-sensory experience of sea swimming provides constant inspiration for Tara Leaver, taking each moment – the salt water, rolling tides, creatures, plant life and wide skies above – and translating them into delicate, expressive paintings; each a visual memory of moments in wild water. Dynamic layers of paint which seep and spread across the artist’s wood panels in varying consistencies and transparencies echo the constant liquid motion of the sea, combined with fleeting, but more carefully drawn or carved glimpses of aquatic life. Birds spread their wings

in flight across whispers of suggested sky, while twisting seaweeds dance amongst the waves below. Alongside her own practice, Leaver teaches courses online, focusing on promoting freedom in art through expressive techniques. Based in Cornwall – near the sea – she has exhibited in galleries locally and in Sussex, and her work is owned by private collectors around the world. A changing display of her paintings can be viewed at Tin Coast Design in Penzance. taraleaverart.com tara@taraleaver.com
