Tara Purnell Lift off

Work by Tara Purnell

Lift off comprises expressive drawings of my best friend and sister at the beach. They are being playful and have an energy that makes them look almost as if they are lifting off. The work expresses my own enjoyments in life: feeling free and able to relax in environments I love, and being with family and friends.
