Tamara Williams

Tamara originally studied Graphic Design at Kingston and spent 30 years running her own design agency in London before revisiting the printmaking and painting she so loved at art college; experimenting with different textures and mark-making by working directly onto plaster, wood and natural materials.

Her design background informs and influences each piece, from a love of composition and visual space to the energy and freedom of abstract line work.

She works intuitively, seeing more when not focused on the detail, with a variety of mixed media on plaster and wood that capture the experience rather than the reality of each landscape. Each painting explores the simplification of pattern, space, colour and texture from the places she has visited. Some of these are specific to landscapes around her studio but mostly they are a visual amalgamation of memories and feelings from one or many places. Tapestry-like vistas with bold monotone blocks which reflect the shadowy-shape of evergreen trees against more open hills and meadows.
