Tamara Rymer has only to turn to her own family’s history to find a deep well of inspiration. Her mind and her art have been fueled by stories of cowboys and traders, travelers and outlaws, horses and Native Americans who crisscrossed the ranch owned by her great-grandparents. As a young girl, her father supplied her with paper, pencils and paint, starting her on a self-taught journey toward becoming an artist committed to capturing Americana.
Tamara paints the west. The animals, people, and landscapes in her environment and travels. Working in oil and watercolor, Tamara's works are in private and public collections. Her membership affiliations include, the New Mexico Watercolor Society, where she is a Signature member, the American Plains Artists, also a Signature member, the Oil Painters of America, and the American Quarter Horse Association.
