As a very impressionable and sensitive child, Tara Ginocchio remembers being infatuated with the visual beauty of her surroundings in scenic Southern California. Her fascination with the colorful desert, mountain, and coastal landscapes prompted her into portraying these images in drawings and paintings at a very early age. She moved to Illinois in 1995 where she completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Painting at Northern Illinois University. Today she lives in a small community in Illinois where open prairie and farmland became her new adoptive home. Tara says, “I look to the natural world around me for inspiration in my work; a garden, a forest, a body of water. I pluck elements from these environments; branches, rocks, vines, flowers, leaves, water and use as a reference.” Tara’s artwork is featured on August Hill Winery’s wine labels, newsletters, and other materials.
