Award-Winning Artist Tara Stonestreet
Tara Stonestreet brought Taradoodles to Erie in 2010. She loves to paint and see the wonder and enjoyment of children who watch her work or see their transformed face. "It makes my heart happy," she says.
An internationally recognized painter, Taradoodles has grown to be a favorite in Erie over the past years, and can be found anywhere from a child's birthday party to an Erie Otters game.
Along with the Otters, clients include Wellsville, WQLN, expERIEnce Children's Museum, The Geek Erie, Erie Insurance, Erie SeaWolves, and many more!
Her business has expanded from facepainting to what she calls "Windoodles," window paintings that bring joy to kids and offer businesses a bright and cheerful way to draw attention to their storefront.
Her clients feel good about hiring her not only because of her talent but because of her philanthropic spirit. Tara spends her profits on purchasing toys for the Toys For Tots program. In 2019, she donated an amazing 12,379 toys to Erie's Toys For Tots!
