Tara Booth is a comic book artist from Portland. Her work visually documents her daily life and her struggles, in a humoristic way. Her technique is mainly intuitive, with a lot of colors, layers, and textures.
“A lot of my work is about living with chronic anxiety and depression. Taking the parts of my life that leave me feeling hopeless or out of control, and being able to turn them into something sort of silly through painting helps to transform some of my negative emotions. It’s also super validating and therapeutic to see how many people deal with the same issues and have similar experiences. The more that people can laugh and relate to my work, the more compelled I am to make it.”
