Traveling Art Parties studio was my home away from home. When Evie decided she wanted to open the Tap studio she welcomed me with open arms to help her in this business. I watched her pour her heart into it, and I was happy to be by her side in doing so. We go way back as they say, and developed a friendship that will last us a lifetime. When it was decided that we would go to traveling only Evie gave me the opportunity to become a business owner. Watching a small business strive because of the dedication she has only motivated me to push harder. TAP wouldn't be what it is today without her. The relationships we developed with customers who are now life long friends, the oppurtunity I now have because of her. For anyone who has had the opportunity to paint with us will understand our crazy antics. We both learned from each other, and still do. Ive become a stronger artist, comedian, mentor, and so much more working at TAP! So here is to many, many years of Traveling Art Parties creating fun, and unique experiences for businesses, and locals in the Tampa Bay Area!
(Founder of TAP)
My name is Evie Harper and Florida has always been my home. I believe my passion for art was passed to me from my mother who made sure that arts and crafts were always a part of our lives.
In 1995, I moved to Weeki Wachee, Florida and fell in love with the area's natural beauty. The wealth of scenery and wildlife here provides the inspiration for much of my work.
Heart and soul, I am an artist, and for the last several years I worked as an instructor at a paint and sip studio. It broke my heart when the owners announced they were closing the doors. But as they say, when one door closes another door opens, and Traveling Art Parties (T.A.P) was formed.
When T.A.P came alive, so did I!
