THE ART OF PAINTING

Taren Saccoman – TESAC Creations
Taren has been involved in art since she could hold a crayon. Growing up in Minneapolis and with two artist parents, it surrounded her in everyday life. Plans to become an art teacher changed into a field of horticulture and landscape design. Now that she is partially retired in Ideal Corners, she is finding the time to try all of the different art projects and some market gardening that she could only think about. She has branched out into many mediums.
Public and private mosaic work, alcohol ink, greeting cards, painted pvc garden posts, greeting signs, painted rocks, sewing, macrame, textile weaving and recently added “dirt shirts” are some of her current interests. Outdoor art is important to Taren and she researches and applies techniques that will hold up the best in Minnesota weather. Taren also offers classes for mosaic and alcohol inks in her home studio.
Taren loves to use bright colors in her work and continues to create pieces that stand out and attract attention. She has been commissioned to create or build many things, from a woodtick costume for a 4-wheeler club to a fireplace hearth for a home in St Paul. Her creativity has no limit.
