Tara’s art shares a glimpse of her life experiences and inner values…. “Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life; dream of it; think of it; live on that idea. Let the brain, the body, muscles, nerves, every part of your body be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success, and this is the way great spiritual giants are produced.” Swami Vivekananda. Tara’s artistic endeavours blossomed over the past five years with a shift of priorities in personal, academic and professional pursuits. Her inner strength and perseverance are rooted within her mixed heritage of Hindu and Roman Catholic philosophy. Tara is fortune to have a very supportive nuclear family, with two loving sons who embrace her artistic initiatives.
