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, writer 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.
Today she creates large and small scale paintings for private collectors in North America, Europe and the United Kingdom from her recently expanded home studio. Each piece is painted with the intention to calm or energize a space through the use of shape, colour and form.
Tamara’s paintings have been exhibited locally at Black Sugar Coffee House, Coastal Bookstore, Dosanko Restaurant and Willow and Wallflower Gifts.
She has had work juried into a number of regional and Canada-wide exhibitions, including The Square Foot Show, PoMo Arts ‘Winter Treasures Market’, Place des Arts ‘Positively Petit’ group show and several exhibitions at the Federation Gallery on Granville Island.
