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 currently has her coloured pencil portrait An Age of Indigo showing in the Pastel Society exhibition, which can be viewed online at the Mall Galleries website. In 2020 Tamsin was selected for both the Society of Women Artists and the ING Discerning Eye exhibition.
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.
