Tara Faughnan

I find inspiration in forms, shapes, and the place where two seams meet. Color interaction is the key inspiration that drives me. It’s that intuitive moment when you put two colors together, and then two more, and two more after that that I focus on. The explorations are endless—and I strive to try to walk the line of discomfort and still make everything work together as a whole.
