Biography


 
 
Tamara began painting at an early age, with the encouragement of my mother, and began drawing her portrait and copying Masters in oil as early as 8 years old.
Tamara's Formal training was done “In the Field” so to speak,  painting along side contemporary masters,  as well as study done viewing the old Masters and how they executed certain techniques, 
As she matured, Tamara reached out more and studied a short time at the Arts Student League in NYC. and exercised my skills , doing workshops across the states and,  one on one teaching.

Painting pure plein air, landscape and figure,  Is how Tamara began her professional carrier,  with accumulating commissions she began working paintings in the studio as well.
With support from her Family, Teachers, Sponsors, and Patrons, Tammy has enjoyed painting as a full time artist, and  says she can’t imagine anything more fulfilling as a profession.

 
 
Proficient in landscape, figure and portrait subjects, Tamara utilizes traditional painting techniques in a decidedly contemporary fashion. While her subject matter remains timeless, she favors dramatic and yet intimate compositions that feature shimmering color harmonies and painterly brushwork.   
In all, Tamara’s luminous oils and murals reflect clarity of vision, passion, and a spiritual focus reminiscent of earlier American impressionists such as Edgar Payne, Guy Rose and William Wendt, and many others.
Tamara was raised in the lush redwood landscape of the Pacific North Coast in California and currently resides in the Jackson Hole Wyoming, where she enjoys the vast Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks
