My name is Klara, I am a full time artist and a mother to two boys.
I grew up living right by the sea and spent my childhood playing with seashells, and gazing at the expansive horizon. The word “Dar” means gift in my language, therefore my shops translates is “Klara’s Gift”. I have always been an artist.


I've been working with the arts and craft world in many capacities since 1988. Handmade textiles have been my core focus since launching TAFA in 2010.

My hope is to contribute to the economic development potential the arts bring to the world, along with the intrinsic beauty shown in the work. May the world become a friendlier place for artists and nature!

Arrived in Kentucky after a childhood in Brazil, college in Minnesota and 20 years in Chicago. It's been a ride!
