Tamara Howell accredits many things with her creative drive, "poems, music objects, human crisis and world events" to name a few. In her creations she states that it is the "beauty in the placement of a line, just so, the curve of a bird's wing, the calm inspired by a labyrinth, or the strength implied by the rigidity of a rectangle" that she uses to achieve her vision.
Biography: Tamara grew up in southwest Georgia, and had been surrounded by art for as long as she can remember. Tamara became interested in using wood as a medium for expression while living in Fairbanks, Alaska. She was drawn to both the aesthetically beautiful aspects of wood as well as the "feel" of wood. Tamara says that she "tries to work with the wood, bringing out what [she] sees inside, instead of working against it by trying to shape it into something that doesn't maintain the natural form." She adds color to the wood because she thinks it is important to how people experience the world and her art. She uses stains to create depth and as she says "breathe a bit of life into my work."
