Thank you for looking at my illustrator's portfolio!
I create wonderful illustrations in digital media, pastels, watercolors, pencils, and acrylics. I am a member of the Society of Children's Books Writers and Illustrators and a regular attendee and portfolio-showcase presenter the Society's annual conferences. I was incredibly fortunate to have been mentored by Author-Illustrator, Amy Hevron, through the SCBWI Regional Mentorship program.

"Tamara was an absolute pleasure to work with on our interactive holiday mural pop-up event at Seattle-Tacoma airport. She designed a beautiful mural that met all our criteria with no problem and was very timely every step of the way during the course of this project. There were some parameters/restrictions that we had to consider given the airport environment and the fact that travelers would be painting the mural but Tamara was very mindful and accommodating. She made sure to confirm every detail and is clearly an incredibly organized person--something that made working with her so seamless. Above all, she was really enthusiastic about the event and that shined through during the entire planning process. The event execution was flawless and the final product turned out fantastic! The mural was donated to a local charity to stay. Thank you Tamara!"
