Tara Blanchard grew up as a child actress and competitive athlete in Los Angeles, California. Some of her movie credits early on include American History X, Come On, Get Happy: The Partridge Family Story, and The Story of Us. Her athletic and artistic pursuits carried her forward to run Track and Field for the University of Southern California, where she received a B.A. in Visual and Performing Arts. As a young adult, she began her international modeling career in Hamburg, Germany, where she lived for several years shooting print and commercial campaigns for brands around the world. With over 13 years of experience as an active lifestyle and commercial model, Tara is trained to bring the beauty, spirit, and spark to set, to visually create the message and movement behind each brand's story. From sporty clients like Lululemon, Nike, Adidas, Reebok, Puma, Oakley, and Fabletics, to big beauty and fashion brands like Neutrogena, Gorjana, Macy’s, DSW, Ugg Australia, Spanx, and Next Official, Tara offers a variety of styles and athletics to animate concepts into creations. In addition to modeling, acting, and athletics, Tara is blending her love for visual arts, and soul expression, as she writes and illustrates her first poetry book
