Tara Dean

Tara studied Illustration at Wrexham College and Harrow College of Art and Design. Returning to Denbigh, she worked with Craig Bragdy Design Ltd, a unique Ceramic Pool and Mural making company based in the town. While working here Tara developed her portfolio and began working on community art projects. The possibilities that clay creates continues to influences her practice today. Tara enjoys exploring different materials through drawing and printmaking in her workshops, sharing her experimental way of working and discovering new environments. The nature of her practice allows for an experience that encourages all in the community to explore being part of the Helfa Gelf Open studios, an event that takes place every year in North Wales. Tara became a mentee with the Lost in Art project in Denbighshire during 2011. Tara continues to work with Denbighshire Art Service, delivering the workshops in Rhyl and Prestatyn, and has created projects with the Vale of Clwyd Stroke Association, Vale of Clwyd MIND, Criw Celf, schools and local community groups in Denbighshire, Conwy and Flintshire and Wrexham. 

Tara is based in Denbighshire, and has worked as a cARTrefu artist since 2017.
