Do you all know who Tara Baker is? Hell, do you know who SuperFly is?
Tara Baker has been a friend of mine as well as an avid Gardner for a while now. She is a Crochet Fashion Artist whose designs have graced the Garden off and on over the past year. A lover of technology, she’s also been behind the scenes at some of the shoots creating video of various happenings. And while Tara’s also a fabulous jewelry designer, her crochet was the first inspiration that caught my attention. The 6-foot-plus, loc’d, amazon is an obvious presence in any group situation but her soft-spoken, light-hearted nature belies that impressive figure. She is a true artist who, like Badu, can be sensitive about her shit.
A little while back, I saw this video that she created and loved it. I had to share it. And I had to share a little bit (just a little bit) of Tara’s creative genius.
Is she trippin’ or what?
