Tarantino obtained a Bachelor of Fine Arts in design and photography from Kutztown University. After completing her undergraduate work, she continued her photographic studies at the International Center for Photography in New York City.

Born with osteogenesis imperfecta (OI), a serious bone condition that also led to profound hearing loss, she has been physically restricted her entire life.

As a disabled artist, Tarantino developed her ’observer’s lens,’ which is what she defines as her ability to find the hidden nuances and humor in circumstances and places that are often overlooked. It is with this trained eye that she showcases the hidden treasure held within the offbeat objects, roadside stops, and forgotten places of our rural American landscape. Her latest project “Roadside Caching” is a tribute to the relationship between nature, people, and the passing of time.

Her work is internationally shown and collected. As an accomplished fine arts photographer, she has received awards from galleries and museums throughout North America and has been named one of the top 100 emerging fine art photographers’ for two years running (2014, 2015) by Photographer’s Forum magazine, an award-winning quarterly publication dedicated to quality reproduction of photography.
