Tara Reed is an artist by passion and not education – she has a degree in Marketing and over 12 years of experience creating art collections that she licenses to retailers and manufacturers.  Her art connects with consumers in a way that makes them want to have the products for themselves, friends, family or gift-giving.

In 2004 she founded Tara Reed Designs Inc – her art licensing business based out of her 1923 Craftsman home in picturesque Portland, Oregon.  She loves the challenge of learning about the business and needs of her clients and creating art that helps sell their products. Tara is honored to serve on the SURTEX Advisory Board – a premier trade show for the art licensing industry.

“My studio is one of my favorite places in the world. I hope you find as much joy from my work as I do so I never have to get a “real job” again!” – Tara Reed.
