The layering process within Tamara White's mixed media pieces reflect the multi-dimensional aspects of life; one story, one memory, one experience layered upon the next. As we hold tight to some memories and shed away others the culmination of these elements create a beautiful, blended canvas, rich with texture and color.

Tamara's work often incorporates found pieces, various papers such as news articles, sheet music, or blueprints with paint and wax. As well, you may frequently find stories, quotes or pertinent symbols woven into the finished surface.

Born in Chester, California, Tamara went on to earn a Bachelor of Arts degree from CSU Hayward in Human Development and a Master's degree in Visual Communication from San Francisco State University. Tamara lives with her family in Berkeley and her art in West Oakland.
