Tara Sweeney’s habit of walking until words and images find her is central to how she creates and teaches. “Close to Home: A Minnesota Year in Sketches,” her debut collection of illustrated creative nonfiction, exemplifies her visual/verbal creativity. She has led eight international watercolor journal programs for Augsburg College, where she has been teaching for 25 years. Tara holds degrees in design and studio art from the University of Wisconsin, and an MFA from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. She is a 2017 recipient of a Minnesota State Arts Board Artist Initiative grant for a collaborative series in celebration of the American Swedith Institute's 90th year.
