I have been an artist since I was a child, working in a variety of media including paint (oil and watercolor), mixed media,
sculpture,     photography, digital music, graphic arts and website design.  I aspire to evolve my own creativity and
inspire  others through my company Thee Art Of, a free gallery and resource website that in turn helps to generate
community arts involvement and volunteerism.

I have degrees in graphic design, desktop publishing and offset printing.  I have been working as a graphic artist for
over twenty years,  in both design and production.  Current graphic design work includes website design, business
cards and brochures, postcards and other media for a variety of people and businesses.  

My work begins through the use of SLR and digital SLR photography to provide a basis for the endless possibilities of
digital media manipulation. When I photograph an object or location I express it as my own, in a way that other people
perhaps may not have thought about. I create images that not only inspire me, but hopefully inspire others to reveal
something about themselves. I create not just a photographic record, but an interpretation of what I discover in the
surrounding environment and everyday experiences while maintaining some illusion fabricated to conjure the realms
of imagination.

My work is an attempt to transform ordinary matter into something extraordinary, to bridge the conceptual realm to the
material world. I recycle and repurpose objects using materials in ways that distill and represent various aspects of their
inherent physical properties, revealing an unexpected beauty in a previously unseen way.

Tarey Potter is a mixed/multi-media artist aspiring to continually evolve his own creativity and
provoke thought
and inspiration in others.
The inherent visual seductiveness, along with the conciseness
of his artworks, further complicates the reception
of their manifold layers of meaning.
Tarey currently lives and works in Boise, Idaho.

-Mystery House Comics -2014
Tarey Potter is a professional artist living and working in Boise, Idaho. The majority of Tarey’s work
highlights contrasting relationships, and creates altered perceptions of traditional forms. What
starts out as hope can soon leave the viewer with an epitaph for the darkness within our existence.
Tarey lives on the Bench with his loving wife, and many cats.

-Mystery House Comics -2016

Tarey Potter is an artist who works in a variety of media. By applying a poetic and often
metaphorical language, Tarey wants to amplify the astonishment of the spectator by creating
compositions or settings that generate surreal poetic images that leave traces and balances on the
edge of recognition and alienation.
His artworks appear as dreamlike images in which fiction and reality meet, well-known tropes merge,
meanings shift, past and present fuse. Time and memory always play a key role. Tarey Potter
currently lives and works in Boise.
