Artist Statement:

Tara T. Boyce grew up in Bend, Oregon and is currently living in Provo, Utah with her husband, Ryan. She is currently a graduate student and writing instructor at Brigham Young University, finishing her M.A. in English with an emphasis in rhetoric and composition. She owes much of her success to her fourth grade teacher, Mrs. Krakow, who helped her write her first poem on a butterfly that “fell from the sky, and landed on a daisy nearby,” to her parents who pretended that poem was awesome, and to Ryan who has never read that poem, but would most likely cheer and call it genius because he knows that’s what his wife needs every once in a while.
