Tamara calls herself a colorist. Color is the life of my paintings. The work flows between watercolor, encaustic/coldwax and acrylics touching on many temperaments. The one thing they all have in common is the vitality of color.
She mainly produces Color Field and Abstract Expressionist works. They changed into what she calls Lyrical-Abstracts. A series of richly colored paintings with a defined subject matter of landscapes, or dreams of landscapes.
The painting surface embrace rhythmic brush strokes, rich color, that build a contemporary landscape.
