Tamara Rymer Biography

Tamara Rymer's art started at a young age. When she was 10 one of her art pieces was selected by the Texas Highway Department to use for their ad campaign for clean highways.

A self taught artist, Tamara has always felt the need to create. There was never a lack of inspiration from great stories of her family history in the old west. Tales of her family's Cherokee heritage have inspired her art to include Native Americans in addition to horses and cowboys north and south of the border, with most subjects coming from current experiences.

Mainly a studio painter, Tamara worked in oils early on, only to learn the craft of watercolors when raising a family to avoid fumes in the house. She acquired a love of the fluidity for that medium and continues both mediums today, as she feels they seem to fuel each other. The first art show she ever entered with a watercolor, was with the highly touted New Mexico Watercolor Society. The painting was juried in and received an award. Several paintings were juried in to the next two subsequent NMWS shows, and after just a year and a half, she had achieved Signature Status with the group, a fast accomplishment.

Some of Tamara's art projects have included commissions for Ramada Inn Hotels, and creating the commemorative art used for the First Annual Austin Pony Express Run, among others. Her work is in international, private, and public collections including that of the State of New Mexico. Her studio time is split between central Texas and Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Tamara's membership affiliations include, the New Mexico Watercolor Society, where she is a Signature member, the American Plains Artists, also a Signature member, and the Oil Painters of America. For more information on Tamara, contact her at tamararymer@yahoo.com.
