CI 202: Chris and Bob learn about licensing with artist Tara Reed

The Artist Tara ReedChris and Bob learn about licensing with artist Tara Reed Tara Reed.

Artist Tara Reed followed a twisting and turning path to where she is today: a mom, an artist who has her own business licensing her art and teaching other artists what licensing is all about and how to do it. An artist by passion and not education – Tara has a degree in Marketing and sold college textbooks after graduating and before starting her family and becoming a stay-at-home mom.

Fast forward 10 years: Tara became a “professional artist” (she considers anyone who make $1 a professional at whatever they do) in 2001 designing papers for the scrapbooking industry.

In 2004 she delved into the wider world of art licensing — at the same time, she was going through a divorce and had to make a decision: take the safer route and get a traditional job with a boss and benefits or continue with her desire to build her own business on her terms.
