About the artist
As the only child of an artist, Tarrant's talent was nurtured from an early age. After her family relocated to Gomshall, Surrey, she illustrated her first book, Kingsley’s The Water Babies' new edition in 1908. Tarrant further refined her skills at the Heatherley School of Fine Art, attending in 1918, 1921, and 1923. She also showcased her work at the Royal Academy from 1914-1927, and the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists.
The 1920s marked the start of her valuable partnership with the Medici Society. From books to calendars, Tarrant's work gained significant exposure, making her a beloved figure throughout the 1920s and 30s. Tarrant died in 1959.
