Art, creativity and a passion for the natural world have always been an integral part of Tamsin’s life.
Once Tamsin mastered drawing in graphite, she began exploring coloured pencils and most recently soft pastel. Each medium has different qualities for both the artist and the viewer, bringing its own nature to the artworks. In every picture Tamsin draws, her gradual building of many layers upon the page allows for a full complement of textures, tones and hues which brings great depth and complexity to her work. It is this simplicity of tools and traditional materials coupled with the timeless appeal of portraiture which fascinates Tamsin, creating a connection between the hand, the page, the subject and the viewer.
Tamsin’s pencil portraits A Thirst for Life and A Lifetime of Laughter are currently part of the Society of Women Artists online exhibition. You can view the exhibition from 22nd September – 31st December 2020 here.
Tamsin exhibits her work both locally and nationally and has been featured in art publications in the UK and the US. Her portraits hang in private collections internationally and she is a Professional Associate member of The SAA.
