Collection Preview – Golf Days

I”l confess: golf isn’t my game. But as an artist l appreciate the history, prints, textures and traditions of the game.

My brother-in-law Mike is an avid golfer and I can’t help but admire the wide array of plaid pants, eccentric shorts and more that he happily wears on the course. The clubs, greens and gorgeous grounds are also visual fodder for my artist’s eye.

I hope you enjoy the collection I’ve put together with input from golfers at Riley Blake Designs and beyond to make sure we got it right. I may not hit the balls but I thoroughly enjoyed painting them! – Tara Reed

Designer: Tara Reed

Tara has been creating things for as long as she could hold a crayon, pencil or paintbrush. She remembers falling in love with sewing in the 7th grade when her friend’s mom taught them how to make wrap-around skirts! (Remember them??) She loves to sew for the home and began quilting in the 90s when her son was born. Her motto is, “Why buy something if you can make it?”

Since 2004, Tara has licensed her watercolors for a myriad of products sold online and in stores worldwide – from garden flags to coffee mugs, wall art to dishes and of course – fabric. Creating patterns, like those that grace bolts of fabric featuring her art, is one of her favorite things to do. Tara creates from her home studio in Portland, Oregon.
