Tamara Stoneman is inspired by the beauty she sees in life every day. With a strong focus on the ocean and Australian flora and fauna, she paints using a variety of mediums including watercolour, pastel, oils and acrylic.
Tamara grew up in Murwillumbah surrounded by the natural beauty of mountains and cane fields. She was always creative, enjoying art lessons at primary school from Judith Sutton and at high school studied art with Ken Siddall. In 1991 she attended the School of Creative Arts at Brookvale, Sydney and studied fine art under the tuition of Sonja Georgeson.
In 1989 she married musician David Stoneman, living on the northern beaches in Sydney for 12 years before moving to Northern NSW in 1999. David and Tamara have played music together for many years and their music reflects an appreciation for the ocean and the relaxed lifestyle of life on the North Coast. Tamara's painting "Wave of Love" is the cover art for their North Coast Time CD. Their new band is called The Beach Poets and the original songs can be streamed on all the live streaming services including Spotify. Having always felt a strong connection to the beauty of nature, the combination of Tamara's painting and music provides a creative outlet to share what she sees and feels with others.
Tamara has exhibited her work at Henning International Galleries in Sydney, 109 Collective Art Exhibitions in Byron Bay, in Germany and in several small local Galleries. Gift cards of her paintings are available at multiple stockists in the local area, or can be purchased directly from Tamara online.
