Hi, I'm Tara!
I’m an artist and maker based in Bedfordshire.
I’m a bird nerd and a natural history buff, who believe it or not, worked as a zoo keeper for several years specializing in birds- everything from corvids, birds of prey to parrots… Birds play a huge role in Cake for Corvids and my original artwork (can you tell?) The name Cake for Corvids was drawn from a box marked 'cake for corvids' which held left over cake crumbs to treat a pair of ravens and pied crows that I used to care for!
Cake for Corvids had humble beginnings in 2016; starting out as a hobby in the late evenings in front of the telly after a busy day on the zoo, to growing into a busy little full time business working from my home studio (I have a desk now and everything!) alongside my quaker parrot, Aqua.
I was declared 'Gifted and Talented' (how fancy) in Textiles and Art throughout school and college and have a Double Distinction in Art and Design. So it's safe to say I've been a creative with fibre, mixed media and everything in between my entire life. Everything I make is made with a lot of love and care.
So go forth and explore my little website! Boy, it's much easier running one website than two at once!
