TARA GOREAU is a large-scale artist whose vivid murals have inspired and reflected communities locally and abroad.

A graduate of St. Johnsbury Academy, Tara traveled extensively before returning to Vermont. She studied ecology and sustainability at the University of British Columbia, volunteered to help build a school and to engage children in mural painting in Swaziland, and studied at The Design & Arts College of New Zealand. 

After earning a BFA at Johnson State College (2011), she focused her attention on the Vermont landscape, its societal trends and concerns to create pieces she considers funny, poignant, or interesting.
