About Tarra

TARRA is a global community of women who are innovating, transforming, creating, designing, writing, fabricating, building, and thinking outside the box.

We place women at the center of the conversation by highlighting those who are breaking barriers and pushing the boundaries of what’s possible.



This is for the innovators, the risk-takers, the rebels, the creatives, the entrepreneurs and the right brainers who are ready to level the playing field.


Greta de Parry

When asked about her entry into the world of woodworking, Greta de Parry describes her experience as “less of a moment, more of a natural evolution”.

For de Parry, the process of becoming an esteemed woodworker was a delicate balance between learning the craft and gaining confidence in her abilities. Armed with an MFA in Sculpture and Designed Objects from The Art Institute of Chicago, and a passion for artfully designed furniture, de Parry dove headfirst into the world of woodworking for the practical, everyday life.


Andrea Beecher of M3LD

When asked to describe the moment she decided to become a designer, Andrea Beecher of M3LD responded with a knowing nod to a ubiquitous theme: “It’s always been in me.”

Armed with keen ambition and playful boldness, Beecher has crafted a multi-faceted design career characterized by both curiosity and focus. Her aesthetic is fearless and dynamic, often pulling from brutalist modern motifs and employing varied elements in intriguing and unexpected combinations. Across numerous creative industries, she has rolled up her (likely pattern-laden) sleeves and plunged in.



TARRA, a community for women in the creative industries, and Goldyn, one of Denver’s most sought after women’s boutiques for progressive fashion, partnered together to host a collaborative installation of local photographers and “Women Who Create” as part of Denver’s Month of Photography.

The Opening Reception was April 20 and brought together the TARRA, Goldyn, and Month of Photography communities. Exhibit will be on display through July. Stop by Goldyn to step inside.
