Tamara Murray is a Virginia-based artist originally hailing from the Midwest. She graduated from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 1989. She has lived in Virginia for the past 30 years, and for over 25 of which her works have been publicly and privately collected.
Tamara draws inspiration from what is missing. She looks for the hidden dimension - what is missing behind a door or a face, what is missing from an ordinary perspective. She employs cropping and unexpected use of color to guide the viewer into a more intimate
relationship with the image.
Tamara is a multidisciplinary artist. She is an artist whose work spans oil, acrylic, watercolor, textiles, sculpture, and digital media. Her interest in materials, in combination with one another or on their own is limitless.
