Tara, of Wolastoqey/French heritage, is a multidisciplinary artist, filmmaker, cartoonist, animator, and podcaster residing in Sunny Corner, New Brunswick. She owns and runs Moxy Fox Studio, where she creates her award-winning works, including the animated short film The Importance of Dreaming, comics This Place: 150 Years Retold and Lost Innocence, and “Nitap: Legends of the First Nations,” an animated storytelling app. Her current project is the Jo Jo Makoons series with author Dawn Quigley.
The series from HarperCollins Publishers is described as: “Jo Jo Makoons Azure is a spirited seven-year-old who moves through the world a little differently than anyone else on her Ojibwe reservation. It always seems like her mom, her kokum (grandma), and her teacher have a lot to learn—about how good Jo Jo is at cleaning up, what makes a good rhyme, and what it means to be friendly.“
