Tamara Grand is a Port Moody-based abstract painter and mixed-media artist who creates colourful, expressive and joy-filled works of art.
After many years of using her creative talents in careers as a biological researcher, fitness trainer and mother of three, a friend introduced her to acrylic paints. A new passion was born. She immersed herself in the online world of art, painting daily to practice and expand her repertoire of techniques and hone her own, personal artistic vision.
As an avid reader of historical fiction, she’s fascinated by the stories beneath the stories. Truths that lie buried and histories that require excavation. Working with organic shapes and many bright-coloured layers of translucent paint, she enjoys creating this same sense of depth and mystery in her paintings.
Tamara’s work has been exhibited locally at PoMo Arts, Place des Arts and the Federation Gallery on Granville Island.
