Biography

I am an Artist and Illustrator based in Brisbane, Australia. I have worked for clients both locally and internationally including Shakespeare's Globe Theatre in London. I use mostly traditional methods for all my work, and I specialise in ballpoint pen portraits, watercolour portraits and pen and ink. Many of the portraits you see here in my folio have been drawn whilst commuting on the train each day and are drawn in ballpoint pen at approximately A5 size (roughly 8.3"x5.8") unless otherwise specified. See a selection of my commercial work on my website, but for all my most recent work, please visit my Instagram page: Instagram: @tara_hale_art
