Wooden Train Cars
About the Artist
Born with osteogenesis imperfect (OI), a serious bone condition that also led to profound hearing loss, she has been physically restricted since before the age of one. As an artist managing disability, Tarantino developed her ‘observer’s lens,’ which is what she defines as her ability to find the hidden nuances and humor in circumstances and places that are often overlooked. It’s with this same trained eye that she illuminates the hidden treasures held within the offbeat objects, roadside stops and forgotten places of our rural American landscape.
