Moving through life is a journey. Instead of focusing on a single subject element, Tamara has chosen to create a journal or time capsule of what she has seen and experienced. Childhood family stories of cowboys and traders, travelers and outlaws, horses and Native Americans who crisscrossed the ranch owned by her great-grandparents, helped spark the art adventure. The stories continue as she zeros in on her Cheraw and Cherokee ancestry that has brought a continuing dedication to her journal in art.
Tamara paints the west.... and further west, from Texas and New Mexico to the Hawaiian Islands.
