About Tairelei

Hi! My name is Solataire, people call me Taire for short. I am an artist and book cover designer. My art name Tairelei (Tair-ah-lye) comes from an art project dear to me that was created with my young daughter.

 

My love for cover design comes from way back when I was just a little girl being an avid reader with a vivid imagination. As I got older, my interest in art grew from strength to strength testing the waters across art styles. I used to paint, sketch, craft and sew all kinds of artsy things.  In 2010 I was introduced to Photoshop, I enjoyed learning the ins and outs of PS by manipulating free stock images found on DeviantArt and learning digital paint styles. This is where I found my passion, within digital mixed media art.

 

In 2015 I created my very first cover design with the lovely Aderyn Wood whom I still work with to this day. From here I was contacted by local musicians to assist on their album cover art. I enjoyed bringing other creatives ideas to life and just grew into two of my favourite things, art and books.
