Tara Johnston is a hand lettering artist, muralist, and designer born and raised in Texas and currently living in Austin. She received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of North Texas in 2010, and has been working as a full-time, independent artist since 2018.
Anchored by custom, hand-drawn type, Tara’s artwork uses words and phrases to help create an emotional connection with the viewer. Her designs are often inspired by conversations with friends, things she over hears in public, or themes that keep repeating in her day to day. She’s obsessed with letters and words and is endlessly using life as inspiration. Her mission: to transform the way we interact with our environment through art & design.
