Tara Booth, a comic book artist from Portland, is known for humorously documenting her daily life and struggles in a visually striking way. She relies on her intuition and employs a vibrant range of colors, layers, and textures in her art. Much of her work explores the challenges of living with chronic anxiety and depression. She takes the aspects of her life that can feel overwhelming and transforms them into playful creations through her paintings, which helps alleviate negative emotions. This creative process is not only therapeutic for Tara but also resonates with many others who face similar challenges and share similar experiences.
The more that people can laugh and relate to my work, the more compelled I am to make it.
