A fine artist, maker and passionate talent living in Northern Arizona, Tamara’s emerging creative practice encompasses vibrant, bold contemporary landscape compositions.
Painting and rock climbing culminate in a meditative experience, and subsequently acquiring intimate views of the landscape which can never be found on a map. Both are earned experiences. Unexpected pops of colors and awkward negative spaces rendered from mental imagery, photographs and on location add to the depth of her oil and cold wax paintings. Responding to texture and color, Tamara reflects on the beauty and complexity that everyday living can provide creating a bookmark to remember time, place and identity.
Many years of studying photography and documentary film has helped her fine art retain a solid and strong color palette.
Tamara’s art practice continues to evolve, making each knife and brush stroke a memory recorded.
