Tamara Lance's Profile

About

Hi there! My name is Tamara and I am a creative person and I have been my whole life. Whether I am drawing, painting, or even making jewelry, I am absolutely not happy unless I am being creative in some way.

A few years ago I started dabbling in making jewelry. I came across a HUGE stash of vintage tin boxes as an estate sale. I had no idea why, but I had to have them all. My husband and I loaded all of these vintage tins up in our truck and I brought them home. In a couple of days I found myself making vintage tin jewelry with them. I am constantly thinking of new and exciting ways to translate every piece of tin into something beautiful and unique to wear.

So what else do I do? Here are some of my bigger passions…

Art

I grew up around artists and art was always a big theme in my life. I love to draw and paint. I dabble in mixed media, acrylics, watercolors, pastels, and basically anything that leaves a mark. I have sold a little bit of art here and there, but for me art is more of a diary – a personal means of expression and therapy. I would never want to be an artist full-time because my inspiration comes and goes.

Digital Art

I have always been really good with computers. When I first discovered Photoshop I was in love and Illustrator extended the love affair. I do a lot of drawing on my Wacom and love to experiment with Photoshop. I sell some of my illustrations on stock illustration websites as well.

Photography

And last but not least is photography! I spent a good portion of my twenties exploring abandoned buildings and from that grew a love for photography as I would document my explorations and excitedly take the the images home. I do a lot of nature and architecture photography these days and have recently started dabbling in microscope photography or microscopy. (Yes, I have a microscope!)

Aside from being creative I also have two beautiful children (who are also very creative) and I love spending time with them. I also love the beach, finding shells, hiking, traveling, and cooking.

Feel free to drop me a line if you have any ideas you would like to share. I am always excited to meet a fellow artsy person.
