Meet Our Spring 2023 Koope Art Call Winner, Tara Reed! - Koope

Meet Our Spring 2023 Koope Art Call Winner, Tara Reed!

We are excited to announce our Spring 2023 Koope Art Call winner, Tara Reed!

Selecting a winner was super difficult, with over 140 submissions we were overwhelmed (and overjoyed!) by how many amazing artists there are.  We were moved by every single piece and thank everyone for submitting.  We encourage you to submit again for future calls 💜

A bit about Tara:

 Tara Reed is an illustrator and surface designer based in Raleigh, North Carolina. She specializes in creating vibrant, mood boosting color palettes. Tara has licensed and sold work to amazing brands such as; Cloud9 Fabrics, Joann, Jiggy Puzzles, and Nerida Hansen. She cares deeply about diversity, inclusion, the importance of mental health, and lifting others up.

 We loved Tara’s piece because it demonstrated strength, self-expression and self love all in one.  We fell in love with her even more after we had the pleasure of speaking with her, where she told us about the importance of diversity in her work.

 Tara’s Koope collection will be available in Spring 2023…stay tuned for launch updates!
