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 digital SLR photography and a computer, which emphasizes the endless medium
of digital media. I explore the abstract and creative lighting through handmade scenery as motifs to describe the idea
of imaginary space. Using props, models and multiple images as patterns, I try to create meditative environments that
provoke thought and inspiration.
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.
