ABOUT THE OWNER Since she can remember, Tara has been an art-loving, creative, re-purposing junky! After working as an HR and strategy professional in corporate America for 20 years, she decided to listen to her heart and those closest to her, and go for it! Tara has a gift for turning unexpected items into something useful and beautiful, a gift to which she credits her uber creative mom. She also strives to make the process very interactive, whether it is designing a signature piece for a fundraiser or including clients’ own pieces into a new creation. Since first visiting Stillwater in the late ‘90s, she has always had her eye on this special river town and loves living here with her husband and three children. • 110 Myrtle Street East • Stillwater, MN 36 SAVOUR
